Pauletta Washington (www.paulettawashington.com) returns to Toronto after her sold out concert last fall, with a new show CHRONICLE.

CHRONICLE is a multi-media show featuring song, spoken word and world music, combined with amazing video elements on a 30-foot curved screen. The audience will be treated to some reworkings of classic rock and soul, together with reinventions of historically significant works - music from Ukranian Kobzars, the Afghanistan Civil War and the Uzbekistan vanished courts - deemed worthy of protection by the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Washington performs with Mamazband, a musical United Nations playing instruments from around the world.

Ms. Washington is also introducing in her concert, support for her global initiative Got Bounce?, an educational series focusing on building resilience and the skills needed for recovery from any crisis. Empowering people in the face of disasters and conflicts is no easy task for any nation. Washington is part of the UNDP’s global network, developing and sharing innovative approaches to peace building, lifelong learning and resilience.

All proceeds benefit Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts.

Running time: 70 minutes with no intermission
