QUARTIER LATIN 8 p.m., June 11, 2010, OPERA HOUSE, 735 Queen Street E

The Congo has produced some of the most vibrant and joyous music to emerge from Africa. Quartier Latin, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, continues the tradition. Featuring members of Kofi Olomide’s legendary band who played on his most groundbreaking albums, Quartier Latin is a red-hot 12-piece group that’s been blowing the roof off concert arenas in Africa, Europe, and North America.

Co-presented by OSEA, the Organization for Social Entrepreneurship in Africa. Proceeds from the concert to support Entrepreneurs in Africa.
