Nai Participated in RPSM's Black History Month Recital


Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honors the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.

For 2018, the theme of the Government of Canada’s Black History Month campaign is Black Canadian Women: Stories of Strength, Courage and Vision.

Regent Park School of Music (RPSM), Nai’s music education partner, organized a Black History Month recital, which took place at the RPSM in Feb 27, 2018. Nai was thrilled to participate in the concert by performing two songs by black artists. The first song was a traditional song from South Africa, sung in English and the original Zulu language. The second song is a spiritual song written by Rose Sanders, the first woman of African descent to become a judge in Alabama in the US.

The families had a great experience, they got the chance to enjoy the concert at the school. The kids were really happy too, they were inspired by seeing other kids from diverse backgrounds playing instruments, and performing on stage at a wonderful recital, coming all together to celebrate this special month.
