Dr. Zoo
Dr. Zoo"Afro-Celtic Rock and Storytelling" - a fusion of African and Celtic music and rhythms: Paul Simon Graceland meets The Pogues at a Newfoundland Kitchen Party! Dr Zoo was nominated for 2009 ECMA World Recording of the Year.

Dr. Zoo is the vision of singer/songwriter Randal Arsenault from Newfoundland, Canada. For years Randal has lived and traveled in Africa, recently completing his doctorate of zoology on competition between white rhino, wildebeest, zebra and impala. After many years of singing to zebras, Randal developed the musical genre of "Afro-Celtic Rock and Storytelling".

Since 2003, Dr. Zoo has toured Canada, Japan, UK, US, and South Africa, and won nominations for 2009 World Recording of the Year (East Coast Music Awards), 2006 SOCAN Songwriter of the Year (Music Newfoundland), 2003 Rock Artist of the Year (Music NL), and a finalist position in the 2003 Canadian Songwriting Competition (CMW).

Dr. Zoo recently opened for Johnny Clegg, Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi, and enjoyed thousands of people dancing and singing Sawubona, Unjani to the song Welcome to Africa. "My main influences are Graceland, Johnny Clegg, Bob Marley and Irish drinking songs" laughs Randal. "I enjoy fusing African with Newfoundland music, and sharing my love of the continent and the Island."
