Winner of a 2017 Grammy Award, Third Coast Percussion performs a multi-media work co-commissioned by Meany Center: a new soundtrack for the beloved Canadian film, Paddle to the Sea. Watch the epic journey of a small wooden boat, launched by a First Nations boy, as it travels from Northern Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean while Third Coast Percussion performs the film score — live. The score weaves music inspired by water and the natural world, by Philip Glass and Jacob Druckman, together with the traditional music of the Shona people of Zimbabwe.

"Impressively combining creative fearlessness with reverent precision."
