Hey Manmohan! Way to start the show! You can never play too much jazz.

1:33 PM, January 21st, 2018
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Ron!! Absolutely. Any excuse to play jazz! I hope all is well with you. Long time no see.

All is well with me and my family. How about you and yours? This break in the cold definitely compliments the hot tunes!

Hi Manmohan, Enjoying the show. I sent you an email earlier this morning with information about Zaina Arekat. She is an excellent guitar player despite having many disabilities. Her music is available on iTunes. BTW, is that Ron Sweetman chatting today?

All is well on our end too. I actually like the cold and was cursing the slushy snow conditions yesterday as I was trying to cross-country ski. More cold weather and hot tunes! :-)

Hi M.P.
Music and Beyond is delighted to announce that Shashank Subramanyam, the undisputed master of the Indian flute, will join the musicians of Constantinople on Sunday, February 18th, 2018 at 4:00 pm as part of the “Four Skies – Four Seasons” series held at the stunning Delegation of the Ismali Imamat on Sussex Drive. This concert, called Under the Indian Musical Sky, is the 2nd of four concerts being presented by Music and Beyond, in partnership with the Aga Khan Museum and Constantinople. Grammy-nominated musician Shashank Subramanyam performs throughout the world and has made over 70 recordings. “I have been a huge fan of the superb Montreal-based ensemble Constantinople for many years,” states Music and Beyond’s artistic director Julian Armour. “I am delighted to be presenting an entire series with them that really showcases their extraordinary creativity and offers such an incredible roster of guest artists. The Delegation of the Ismali Imamat is a perfect location, too. It alone is worth the price of the ticket!” This concert will pay tribute to the late master of the sarangi, Dhruba Ghosh, who was a close collaborator of Constantinople. Tickets are available at www.musicandbeyond.ca or by calling 613-241-0777. Boxoffice@musicandbeyond.ca

It's about 2:26 p.m. I like whatever song is playing right now.....

2:27 PM, January 21st, 2018
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Thanks Shelley Ann. I will look forward to checking out that artist. The song you're listening to now is by the legendary Qawwali vocalist Abida Parveen.

Thank you Manmohan, Actually what I did is I got SIRI to listen to it, and she said the artist, album and song--then there was a "Buy' button right beside all the information. They make it WAY too easy to feed our addictions for music.

Wow, excellent! Now d not end up penniless in a few days.

Indeed, Ralph Hopper's Acoustic Frontiers program (CKCU, Mondays, 12:30-14:00) will totally get your "puppy hears a new sound" ears wiggling! Often quite challenging, but worth every moment. Got to play a couple tracks learned on that program just last week on TIE.
