In response to the recent hate-motivated hit and run in London, Ont., Canadian poet Wali Shah performs his spoken word poem, Home, which he wrote shortly after a tragic incident that happened to him and his family. Canadian comedian, actor and CBC host Ali Hassan discusses the attack in London, Ont., and shares his own experience with Islamophobia. Amarrass Records co-founder Ankur Malhotra talks about a new three-part docuseries, Searching for the Blues, which shows what the blues of the American South has in common with a centuries-old music scene in Rajasthan, northwestern India. Toronto singer-songwriter Rochelle Jordan explains how the retro U.K.-inspired sound on her latest album, Play With The Changes, isn't just an ode to her British-Jamaican roots but her present-day mindset.
