Songhoy Blues with Special Guest Ndidi Cascade

Fri, Oct 27

Biltmore Cabaret, 2755 Prince Edward St, Vancouver, BC V5T 0B5, Canada map

Songhoy Blues are four talented, hungry, sharp and outward-looking young men from a part of the world that has had more than it’s share and pain and conflict in recent years. But it has given far more than its share of music and joy to the world in return over the past four decades. That place may seem strange, alien and ‘exotic’ to some but deep down, Songhoy Blues are a familiar proposition: four young men, guitar, drums, bass and vocals, driving rhythms, big hearts and a story to tell.
Through their music bears elements of contemporary rock and hip hop, at its heart is Songhoy Blues, deep attachment to the homegrown songs and dances of Mali. Songs like “Irganda” and “Al Hassidid Terei” see Songhoy Blues blending the traditional and the modern, the homegrown and the foreign, the youthful and the ancient.

Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown map

The Event:
On October 28, more than 400 business leaders and philanthropists from the South Asian community will gather at the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel to celebrate the 9th annual A Night of Miracles gala. The black-tie event, which is co-presented by Fasken Martineau and Rogers Communications, has raised $4.2 million for BC Children’s Hospital over the last eight years. This has gone toward cutting-edge equipment and programs that ensure our frontline care providers have what they need to save children’s lives.

The Cause:
Every year, more than 48,000 critically ill and injured kids rely on BC Children’s Hospital for 24/7 emergency care for medical and surgical conditions, as well as trauma. This year’s gala is supporting an innovative Point-of-Care Ultrasound Program within the new Ledcor Children’s Emergency Department. Using portable ultrasound technology at the bedside, the program will help us diagnose life-threatening conditions faster and more accurately. We’ll also help to minimize the discomfort of painful procedures.
