This week's episode of The Strombo Show is a three-hour musical journey featuring conversations with A.R. Rahman, Jason Collett and an intimately sweaty session with Busty and the Bass.

A.R. Rahman is known as the "Mozart of Madras," one of the world's all-time bestselling recording artists, a renowned composer and songwriter whom we know best for his blend of hip-hop and Bollywood on the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack. In conversation with George, he explores his musical heritage, his relationship with his mother, the Slumdog moment, his record collection, his appreciation for M.I.A., collaborations with Mick Jagger and more.

Busty and the Bass are Montreal's funk heroes of the college circuit. They're a nine-piece collective born within the McGill scene and have earned praise cross-country for their musicality and ability to throw good-vibes-only parties. We welcome their stampede into the kitchen for a session.

Jason Collett lays down an acoustic set to celebrate the return of the Wolfe Island Music Festival and Broken Social Scene. He testifies to the importance of community that Wolfe Island provides, his faith in NDP candidate Charlie Angus, an update on the Al Purdy Songbook project and a glimpse into BSS's upcoming record.

Also, Strombo unveils exclusive song premieres from the futuristic Los Angeles soul of Chicano Batman, Vancouver's glam sounds of Gay Nineties, America's folk gem Kath Bloomand and energetic Guelph-based supergroup, Odd Years.
