Toby Tobias: “Journey from Johannesburg”

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby has immersed himself in many genres of American Music while never leaving behind his roots in the rhythms and melodies of his homeland. His trio’s performance will tell the story of his journey through three continents and takes the form of his original songs interspersed with small narrated vignettes about his life growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa and Jerusalem, Israel and finally New York, USA. The show’s message is one of racial equality, understanding of each other’s cultures and religions, and a strong desire for togetherness in a world which seeks to divide rather than bring together.
