PIERRE KWENDERS HOSTS MONTREAL SESSIONS MAY 2015

Pierre Kwenders is a Montreal singer, writer and DJ born in Kinshasa (Congo) in 1985, and who immigrated to Canada as a teenager. He was introduced to music in the early 2000s when he participated in his church choir, and began to sing professionally ten years later. He released two EPs and managed to define a sound of his own, which he describes as afro-futuristic, a mix of Congolese rumba and electro. He has performed at Montreal’s FrancoFolies and at the Pop Montreal festival in 2013. He was nominated at this year’s Junos for the World Music Album of the Year award. Pierre is hosting Montreal Sessions every Tuesday from 3pm - 5pm.

NARCY HOSTS IF YOU GOT EARS FOR THE MONTH OF MAY

Yassin got his masters degree in Media Studies, ultimately shaping the context and ethos behind his work. He currently teaches at Concordia University in Montreal as a part-time professor.

He recently set up his multi-media company The Medium in Montreal, Canada. The goal of MDM is to facilitate international collaborations amongst thinkers, artists, and brandeurs worldwide.

With music as his message, The Medium is the umbrella that encompasses all his creative collective as an international body of ‘independents’, New World Citizens.

Off the Hour / May 22th, 5-6pm / Montreal march in support to Baltimore

Today on the show, Montrealers took to the streets on Wednesday night in solidarity with the Baltimore uprising in the wake of Freddie Gray’s murder by police last month. CKUT’s Antoine Cadaux was there to file a report.

Then, a broad coalition of groups hosted a press conference in Toronto yesterday to announce plans for the “March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate.” . Anouk Millet of the CKUT news collective spoke with Indigenous activist Clayton Thomas-Muller to bring us more.

Then, on May 12th, the Migrant Sex Worker’s Project and Butterfly, an Asian and migrant sex workers support network held a forum in Toronto. Following the event, CKUT’s Emily Enhorning spoke with Elene Lam, founder of Butterfly, about some of these issues.

And finally, we’ll hear a report on a demonstration this morning in Toronto against Hudbay Minerals, with activists accusing the Canadian company of human rights abuses from Manitoba to Guatemala to Peru.
