Fuse Ottawa

Davey Boy 2.0

Recommended Posts

Hello Fuse fans,

We've got another taping for your aural & visual pleasure, and this time it's a case of North meets South.

Apostle of Hustle is the brainchild of Andrew Whiteman, perhaps best known for his work with Broken Social Scene. But with his Apostle bandmates, Andrew conjures up dense rhythms inspired by visits to Cuba, all mixed with his indie rock sensibility.

Tanya Tagaq was born and raised in Cambridge Bay, but it wasn't until she went to art school in Halifax that she discovered Inuit throat singing. Now she's in demand all over the world, by esteemed artists like Bjork and the Kronos Quartet, as she improvises gutteral vocals, sweet sighs, and breathy sounds.

What will happen when Tanya's throat singing meets Andrew's Cuban-rock rhythms? As usual, we have no idea. But also as usual, we can promise that it will be pretty great.

Tanya and Apostle will meet Thursday, May 17, at 7PM in our Ottawa broadcast centre.

If you'd like to come, please do not reply to this email, but rather head on over to the "tickets" section of www.cbc.ca/fuse . Fill out the form, and if we have space left someone will contact you to confirm your reservation. Please, pretty please: do not request tickets unless you're fairly certain you can come. We do not maintain a waiting list for last-minute cancellations.


In other news, we've got just 2 more tapings left to go, both to happen in June, before our season ends for the summer. We'll let you know about them soon. One of them is gonna be big. And unexpected. In fact, it's such a crazy combination we have no idea if it'll work or not. But we'll spill the beans on it soon.

For summer, we've got a great lineup of old and not-so-old favourites. And we'll be back in late August with more new tapings.


On-air schedule:

May 12/13 - Creaking Tree String Quartet & Kevin Breit

May 19/20 - Patrick Watson & Torngat

May 26/27 - Apostle of Hustle & Tanya Tagaq

June 2/3 - Mike Evin & Brothers Creeggan

June 9/10 - Ellen McIlwaine & Lal

Thanks, as always, for your support!
