TONIGHT: A tribute to Odetta

Join me on FM88.5 (Edmonton) and (worldwide) tonight at 8 until 10 pm Mountain time for a tribute to the late, great Odetta. How sad, as 2008 closes out, that we've lost two giants of folk and social justice music... Odetta and Zenzi Miriam Makeba.

We'll also hear from:

Ethiopia's Gigi
Morocco's Mariem Hassan
Cameroon's Manu Dibango
Nigeria's King Sunny Ade
Algeria's Nediha Gaouria, Mara + Jalal and Ahlam
Somali-Canada's K’Naan and Li-One
Democratic Republic of Congo's Zap Mama
Mali's Ali Farka Touré
Afrikamerica's Jeru the Damaja, Chuck D., DJ Spooky, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Common, Erykah Badu, Eddie Holman and Archie Shepp
