In late 2018, Richard Gannaway, our co-founder, travelled 6000 miles from his hometown in Asheville, North Carolina to Abakan, Siberia, where these beautiful children, students at the renowned Kenel Music School sang their hearts out for “Nashu”, the opening track on our spring 2021 release, Kutumba.
The trip to Siberia was coordinated by longtime AO collaborator, Siberian multi-instrumentalist and composer Nadishana (centre left in the image) who grew up just a few miles from Abakan. Without him the trip would not have been possible. Nadishana performed on our two previous releases, Asha and Hokulea, and it was an honour to work with him again.

Children in need, from their hometown in Abakan, Siberia, will be the recipients of charitable support from AO Foundation International!
