When most people want to learn about their ancestors, they look through old photographs and piece together the stories they can find. Jay Malinowski of the JUNO-award winning reggae group Bedouin Soundclash takes it one step further as he reimagines his ancestor Charles Martel’s life through music. Under the name Jay Malinowski and the Deadcoast, he pairs his piano skills with strings to create a would-be soundtrack to Martel’s global travels.
ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos gets Jay to open up on how he pieced together Charles Martel’s history to write the album Martel. The musician also talks about his best dog friend and playing shows in his apartment. There’’s all that and more in this episode of #NoFilter!
