Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2017-07-26: RIP Regis Gizavo (and Jerry Cans)

This week’s episode of Accordion Noir Radio — the first back at our radio station’s new, old, permanent home at Columbia and Hastings — was a memorial tribute to the late Malagasy accordionist Régis Gizavo, who we would much prefer to be profiling because he was coming to town to play at our festival.  He was the jewel in the crown of Accordion Africa, and if you weren’t already familiar with his work… it’s high time you got a crash course.  And for requisite train-wreck content, we also played several songs by Nunavut’s folk-rock darlings The Jerry Cans, who were in town this week to perform at the awesome Drum is Calling Festival.  You can enjoy the program as a digital audio stream (for a few months, at least) or make it yours forever via MP3 download. Now here’s the playlist to help you figure out whether a given song is from Madagascar or Iqaluit:
