Va­ri­ety of Mu­sic

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS -

singing such var­ied styles of mu­sic as North Amer­i­can, African-latino and mu­sic from the An­tilles Is­lands. The mu­si­cal dance group con­sists of chil­dren singing and danc­ing to hip-hop style gospel mu­sic, which is geared to­ward the more young at heart. The mu­sic is in both French and English, stress­ing the de­sire to re­move all bar­ri­ers, lin­guis­tic and eth­nic, so that ev­ery­one can feel wel­come to cel­e­brate Easter to­gether. Anku ex­plained that he ‘be­lieves this is how Je­sus in­tended us to be, and how His love for us is demon­strated’.

The con­cert will last an hour and a half and will be fol­lowed by re­fresh­ments, giv­ing guests the op­por­tu­nity to so­cial­ize with one an­other. Anku’s in­ten­tion for this con­cert is to of­fer ‘une fête’, claim­ing ‘there is al­ready too much sad­ness in the world so it is time to cel­e­brate love and hap­pi­ness with oth­ers.’ In speak­ing with the Swiss-born Anku, it was ev­i­dent he knew some­thing about joy, as he seemed to laugh through­out the con­ver­sa­tion and seemed a very happy fel­low. He ex­plained his rea­son for mov­ing to Canada was a ‘call­ing in his heart’, and expressed a great deal of sat­is­fac­tion in the work that he does and with the choices he has made. He also expressed his hope that ev­ery­one is aware of the in­vi­ta­tion and will feel wel­come to at­tend, and asked that we ex­tend his bless­ings and wishes for a happy Easter to all.
