Hi, World Cafe fans! I just moved to the U.S. from Toronto, Canada, to become World Cafe's new contributing host and producer. Yes, I'm from Drake's hometown. And yes, that's the most frequently asked question since I've been here. But if your musical knowledge north of the 49th parallel doesn't extend past Drizzy and The Six, you're in luck. I brought a pile of musical gifts across the border with me. Below, find your introduction to 10 Canadian acts you definitely want on your radar.
Who's new to you on this list? Who do you love? Who did I miss? Let me know on Twitter — I'm @TaliaSchlanger.
Can't wait to share the best of the best in the U.S. and beyond, now that I'm officially on World Cafe turf!
