R.I.P. Charlie Ndiaye (Orchestra Baobab)

8:00am - 12:00pm

The great bass player with Senegal's classic band died last month. He was the "fulcrum" around which the band swung. Memorable show at The Commodore a few years back really showed how much they were driven by him. This being SOCAN reporting week, I played as many Canadian acts as possible - including lots of concert highlights from the past 12 months and previews of upcoming shows. New releases too. This country's folk and roots music community is so creative and exciting right now!
