A Middle Eastern musical variety mix – from Montreal, Morocco via the UK, & Israel in the first 40 mins. That is followed by a three song set by Toronto’s Kobo Town for a new calypsonian poetry/activism. Then we hear a two song selection from Ethiopian retro group from Boston’s Berklee School of Music, Debo Band, who recently played the Cedar Cultural Center. Then the highlight of the show — a first listen to an exclusive interview with Oliver Mtukudzi, superstar from Zimbabwe, Southern Africa — conducted by Minna Zhou who joined me on today’s Global Beat.
