Ali Saaid with traditional Ethiopian "Krar" instrument (CBC)
Ali Saaid lived through two famines in Ethiopia and has strong ties with Somalia. A Somalia woman once gave Ali Saaid food when he was desperate and he hasn't forgotten that helping hand.
He lives now in Winnipeg and dropped by Information Radio to share his story, a poem and music, in support of CBC's famine relief fundraiser.
Here's Ali Saaid with Terry Macloed and Marcy Markusa.
