Everyone is welcome, even those without pups! It will be adorable. Plus we are selling raffle tickets for prizes to many of our favourite local businesses (see the list of participating businesses in the flyer below). You can buy tickets at the event or in advance at AAA Bar at 138 Adelaide Street East. You do not need to attend the event to participate in the raffle.

Live at the Kisanii Hub Featuring Kuné
Jamii presents KUNÉ ("together" in Esperanto), an eleven-piece collective made up of immigrant musicians from all over the world and one Metis-Canadian. Kuné’s artistic practice captures and recreates the experience of living in Toronto, one of the world's most diverse cities.
Along with the performances by Kuné, some Esplanadian percussionists from our community members will join them! These community members were participants in a series of percussion workshops organized by Jamii for 3 weeks!
Don’t miss out this cozy and magical autumn gathering in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood!
WHEN: Thursday, October 27th and Friday, October 28th at 6pm and at 7pm
WHERE: The Esplanade & Berkeley St.
