SOULS OF STEEL RELEASES ITS DEBUT CD, THE ARRIVAL

TORONTO (Monday, November 25, 2013) - Souls of Steel Orchestra (Souls) and Sanch Canada Inc. (Sanch Canada) are pleased to announce the release of Souls' debut CD, "The Arrival" on Wednesday 4th December, 2013.

This ground-breaking CD is the result of an inspired collaboration between these two organizations which share a vision of the powerful and constructive impact the Steelpan musical instrument can have on youth in schools and their respective communities.

Sanch Canada's "Pan in Education" program facilitated recording of Souls and co-production of "The Arrival" in a joint venture which is the first of its kind in Canada.

The collaboration between these two organizations will be the foundation of the model to be rolled out across schools and communities in the Greater Toronto Area and eventually throughout the rest of Canada.

"The Arrival" showcases Souls' versatile repertoire ranging from jazz to contemporary through classical to dance genres. Music by this 10-member Steelpan ensemble is selectively infused with flugelhorn, trumpet and vocal performances to provide a unique musical experience.

"The Arrival" by Souls is now available in High Definition CD format at select retailers including:

  • A Different Booklist 746 Bathurst St., Toronto, ON M5S 2R6 (416) 538-0889
  • Play De Record 357A Yonge St., Toronto, M5B 1S1 (416) 586-0380
Also available online and as a digital download from the Sanch Marketplace at www.sanch.com.
