Greetings everyone! We’ve had such wonderful feedback from folks about Njacko’s interview on CBC’s Here And Now this past week when they featured his new song Tu Es Mon Coeur as their Song Of The Week. A big thank you to Marina Wray for the invitation to join the show!
We have had a few requests to see the lyrics for Tu Es Mon Coeur, so here they are (in English and French)! If you haven’t had a look already, please check out the video for this song on YouTube. Continue reading →
Well, it’s two days later and we’re still all abuzz with the energy from the CD launch on Friday February 22nd at the Gladstone Hotel. What a night! We want to thank all of you who came out to support the launch and dance the night away with us. We also really want to thank all of you who came out only to find that the venue was already full – thank you so much and we apologize that you weren’t able to spend the evening with us.

Here is a translation from the text on the bottom of the left hand side of the panel: “I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, and it’s not me who is thanking you, all of you who contributed to the making of this first foundation stone.”
Here’s to the first stone which has led to the most recent milestone!
