Join CIUT-FM at Steve’s Music on Saturday, march 24th, from 2-4pm for another “undiscovered” live broadcast Featuring Bridget Melody and Evan Pang
Bridget Melody is a Toronto based contemporary folk singer/songwriter and visual artist. Driven by a penchant for poetry and a mandate to craft truthful lyrics, Bridget enthralls audiences with evocative songs that stir the soul and elevate the spirit. As an emerging artist, armed with a distinctive vocal style and an arsenal of material, Bridget is eager to set sail on a new adventure where she can dedicate more time towards recording and performing.
Evan Pang is an Oji-Cree singer songwriter who grew up in a rural area near Thunder Bay, Ontario. He grew up in a home without running water or a constant source of electricity. So with not much else to do he found solace in chords and lyrics. He recorded a self-titled album with a band called “The Communication” while earning money as a prospector in the northern reaches of Ontario. He moved to Toronto to pursue music with a group under the banner “Metis,” and attended school for journalism at the same time. Now, Evan lives a double life. One side works as a digital content specialist for a major broadcasting company and the other is performing music with an evolving group called “Nothing Man.” He is currently recording an EP that’s scheduled to be released this summer and will be returning to studio to record another single which is expected to be released before the fall.
CIUT 89.5 FM is proud to announce that Phil Taylor has been awarded the Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza Prize for 2018 by the International Network for Peace and Democracy.
The Taylor Report has reported on Umuhoza’s political campaign for a representative democracy in Rwanda. She is currently held in a Rwandan prison.
“Phil Taylor is the host of The Taylor Report on CIUT 89.5 FM at the University of Toronto. He was an investigator for defense attorneys at the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda, where they challenged the court’s a priori assumptions about what had actually happened in Rwanda in 1994. For many years his CIUT-Taylor Report was the only North American broadcast outlet giving voice to dissident Rwandans and ICTR defense attorneys. His Taylor Report website offered the only English translation of Robin Philpot’s book, Rwanda 1994: Colonialism Dies Hard, until the book was updated and finally published in English in 2013 as Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa: From Tragedy to Useful Imperial Fiction.”
