May 2, 201838 minutes


Suba Sankaran is pretty busy these days. In addition to a successful career as a performer with acts including Autorickshaw, Retrocity, and FreePlay Duo, she's also the co-artistic director of Sing! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival.

On this week's show, Suba joins Andrew to talk about the rising popularity of vocal music thanks to the success of media like Glee! and Pitch Perfect and artists like Pentatonix and Eh440. We also get into the unique nature of this increasingly popular but still remarkably tight-knit and collaborative musical community. Plus, hear how the 2018 edition of Sing! is coming together, and some of the innovative new artists and ideas to take in.
