On his new global fusion opus, "Shivaboom" (eccodek's third CD), Canadian sound scientist Andrew McPherson joins a rarefied ranks of musical alchemists, inviting world-class vocalists and players from Mali, India and Turkey to roam freely through his lush sonic panoramas of deep bass, wide grooves and soaring melodies. On stage, the 6-piece band is joined by Juno-winning Indian vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia, with whom Eccodek has played sold-out shows at numerous jazz festivals. New York DJ Derek Beres drops in to round out the vibe. As a core member of the Globesonic collective, this author, jourmalist and yoga instructor is a pioneer, exploring the crossroads of traditional, mythic and urban musical culture.

The Festival is also supported by all three levels of government: the Canada Council for the Arts, Heritage Canada, Ontario Trillium Foundation, and Toronto Arts Council. Other keystone partners and supporters include: QUEX Inc., Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Roy Thomson Hall/Massey Hall, Lula Lounge, CBC Radio, NuFunk.ca, Batuki Music, Worlds of Music Toronto, CIUT 89.5 FM, CHIN Radio, ComPosition Music, Dinamo Design, MGS Marketing, Long & McQuade.
