Miyanda at the Chan Centre

Miyanda was presented with Masabo for the 3rd year in a row at the "Roots and Shoots Festival" showcasing established World Music Artists together with emerging World Music Artists.

The two shows were attended by upwards of 700 students from various VSB Elementary Schools. Miyanda and Masabo - together an instant hit among the masses - would like to thank the Chan Centre and the Vancouver School Board for the annual invitation!
