Toronto artists and musicians will join together at the Lula Lounge on Sunday, April 7, 2013 to pay tribute to Achilla Orru Apaa-Idomo. Achilla passed away on February 4, 2013 in Toronto. Born in Uganda, and blind at childhood, Achilla was the finest musician that ever played the simple lukeme, a hand-held wooden box instrument with keys made from flattened bicycle spokes (also known as likembe, mbira, kalimba, sanza or simply thumb piano). The extraordinary gathering of so many talented artists at the Lula is a fitting homage to Achilla who touched the lives of many with his music in Toronto, Canada and around the world.
Led by Chef Trevor Viirre, Lula's culinary team has created a distinctive menu that like Lula itself, is decidedly international with a Latin soul that shines through in everything we do. Check out Lula's new tropical fusion menu.
$20 suggested donation. All proceeds go to the Achilla Orru Memorial Fund.
