The vision of PEI/Newfoundland songwriter Randal Arsenault, DR. ZOO is described as ‘ Funky World Celtic Folk – Paul Simon Graceland meets Great Big Sea’.
The new album was recorded in South Africa and features the South African Singers 50-person choir, and Johnny Clegg drummer Barry Van Zyl.
The album explored themes of multiculturalism, embracing our differences and coming together to create positive world change.
Arsenault, who spent 20 years working in Africa and is currently Assistant Professor with the UPEI School of Climate Change will be joined onstage by beloved Island musicians Em Peters (guitar), Morgan Wagner (violin/piano) and Matt Bridges (drums).
Since 2003, DR. ZOO has released 6 CDs and gained multiple award nominations for MusicPEI (2023), East Coast Music Awards (2022,2015,2008), MusicNL (2003,2005,2008) and CMW Canadian Songwriter of the Year (2003).
