Meet The Community Recipients – Valour Rocks

Valour Rocks is free after school music program in the West End of Winnipeg that serves diverse and Indigenous kids.  Two passionate musicians teach the kids who drop in how to express themselves by making music, and not by getting into trouble, and valour Rocks is a safe environment for learning. Habib Omboke teachers how to DJ, while Lindsey White offers lessons for the kids on drums, guitar, voice, and keyboards. Together they broaden what’s possible for kids who have too few musical experiences.

In 2017 Valour Rocks received musical instruments and equipment via the MusiCounts TD Community Music Program, which has helped them inspire more youth through music. Our friends at CBC Music visited Valour Rocks to understand how these instruments and music are changing the community. Watch now:
