The New Canadian Global Music Orchestra was created by The Royal Conservatory of Music to explore and celebrate the cultural diversity and pluralism of Canada. Hailing from all corners of the globe and now living in Canada, the orchestra’s 12 musicians play instruments as diverse as they are, from the Fulani flute of Burkina Faso to the bouzouki of Greece to the hulusi of China.
The project was conceived by Mervon Mehta, the Conservatory’s Executive Director of Performing Arts, and is led by Artistic Director David Buchbinder, Canada’s JUNO Award-winning trumpeter, composer, bandleader, and cultural inventor.
