Friday Drive
Friday September 2nd, 2022 with Trevor Walker

Happy Friday Drivers! This week's show will consist of mostly new acquisitions I’ve been meaning to get to for a little while, some have been accumulating a little over the summer and it's been on the brain to get them up and on the airways. If everything goes according to plan we’ll be hearing an eclectic mix of all kinds of grooves with some sampling from “Far Out / Mr. Bongo” who’ve been on fire, new things from the Meridian Brothers new album, some tasters from E. Live’s modern boogie instant classic “Cloud Vibes”, some nice modern afrobeat grooves from Kokoriko’s latest, "Could We Be More", selections from Liquid Saloon’s Album “Took A Second” and more! Thank you for taking the time and hope you enjoy the show!

This festival gives all Canadians a chance to experience the beauty and wonder of African culture and expression. It promotes a sense of integration and representation for African Canadians, and celebrates a culture that is often misunderstood or undervalued. This festival highlights local artists who struggle to find opportunities to showcase themselves in the Ottawa music scene, and provides artisans of African fashion, goods and crafts with a chance to display their wares. There is also a place for authentic African cuisine food vendors and restaurants to promote their businesses, sample and sell their food. With live performances from both local and international artists, children's activities and fashion shows, this is a festival the whole family can enjoy. Last year was our 2nd year and was in person at Mooney's Bay Park, Over 10,000 people attended the Festival with Positive feed back, this year we plan to make it better and bigger. This year, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting in person festival at our well known beach in OTTAWA on September 10th and 11th 2022. Come have fun while discovering local talents and diverse African culture at our free festival.

With original music composed by Hector Aguero Lauten and impressive performances by Ivanesa Cabrera and Jorge Luis Gonzales, Celia is a musical play that bets on love, nostalgia and joy, essential elements in the life of every Cuban.
