Dr. Zoo remind us we’re all in this together with their inspirational, anthemic new single We May Win — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The family-friendly global folk band’s anthemic latest release finds frontman Randal Arsenault’s clarion call of a voice riding over a unique African Celtic arrangement that features powerful drumming from Barry Van Zyl (formerly with Johnny Clegg) and stirring backing vocals from the South African Singers Choir. Arsenault’s skills as songwriter and educator are on vivid display as he looks toward the better world we all want:
“We may win, we may lose
It don’t matter, matter at all
It ain’t no sin, if we choose
To be together, we can have it all.”
Why isn’t the title We Will Win? Because nothing in life is guaranteed, explains Arsenault, offering a dose of realism in the hopes it will deliver a jolt of inspiration and determination at a time when both are sorely needed.
Dr. Zoo are a multinational, multicultural ensemble of Canadians, Africans, and positive thinkers of many stripes. They have been nominated for numerous awards and have toured internationally with iconic acts including Clegg, Hugh Masekela and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. When he’s not on the road, Arsenault teaches at the University of PEI School of Climate Change and Adaptation.
