Yaki’s Story

Richard Bourbeau (A.K.A. Yaki), began to write music for his children soon after their birth. One song led to another, and soon he began performing these songs at his children's day care, and then their primary schools. His songs are funny, educational, and easy to relate to. He has played for groups of a few individuals, and up to groups of 700. He has been performing his music for the last 15 years (The last 10 in Ottawa). He has performed at over 175 schools in the Capital region!
