Description

Growing up, Gentil Misigaro only knew the world as a place of loss, fear, and death. For fifteen years he and his family moved from country to country to escape the violence, but it followed them from their village in Congo to Rwanda and then Uganda. Through it all Gentil found strength and hope in music. When his family got the news that they had finally found a new home in Canada, Gentil saw his music as a powerful force that could bring positive change to his new homeland and to the world.

This is the first book of the "Arrivals" nonfiction series about the lives of immigrants and refugees. Stay Strong: A Musician's Journey from Congo is the true story of Gentil Misigaro, who grew up in Congo amid violence, suffering, fear, and death. For fifteen years he and his family moved from country to country seeking to escape war and horror, traveling from their village in Congo to Rwanda, Uganda, and finally Canada.
