How the banjo helped Kaia Kater understand her Afro-Caribbean roots
Kaia Kater is a banjo player who grew up in a household that loved folk music. Growing up as a bi-racial kid in Montreal, she didn't always feel like she belonged, but that started to change when she learned about American roots music. Kater brings her banjo into the q studio with Tom Power to perform a few songs, and talk about how the origins of the banjo helped her understand her own Afro-Caribbean roots.
Kater's latest album Nine Pin is out now. She'll be playing a special Black History Month concert at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto on Saturday, Feb. 24.
