Behind The Scenes

The Sounds of Canada television documentary will be presented in a “behind-the scenes” style: artists will talk about themselves, their music, families and their Canadian experience.

Participants from the Sounds of Canada on-line series represent musicians and singers from Canada’s vast ethnic fabric performing all genres of music, from classical to contemporary pop and rap. Our cameras will follow them as they share their stories of their homeland, what initially brought them to Canada and why they ultimately decided to make Canada their new home.

For the most part, Canadian society celebrates diversity. Our artists will share what it means to them to live in a time and place that allows them to continue to practice their traditional ethnic ways, and raise their children in a country that celebrates these cultural traditions along with them.
