Hi Manmohan, Listening in today while getting ready for some company this evening--the music is nice and energetic as I'm bustling around.

Manmohan Panesar (host)
Thanks, Shelley Ann. You are truly a dedicated listener! Keep on bustling to the tunes.

Hi again Manmohan, I only caught the end of what you said--a singer who could neither speak nor sing for a time, and now she is back? Is she someone who has a disability? I am always on the lookout for musicians who have disabilities for Welcome To My World.

Hi Shelley Ann. That's good question. I'm not sure if she now has a disbil;ity/ Maybe do a search for Kandia Kouyate. I will see ifg I can dig anything up. I can also send you a list of some artists that I know do have a disability.

Oh, please do! We always need lots and lots of music by artists who just happen to have disabilities. This always is a welcome addition to our show.

Just popped on to Wikepedia--said that she had a stroke in 2004 but regained the ability to sing. We have featured other artists who had strokes and other health issues but regained their ability to perform. Some of my best show ideas come from listening to the Mighty 93!

And just as an aside....the name Kouyate is the name of a song by one of my all time favourite 80's British pop/funk groups, Level 42.
