Song of the Day

Tune in weekdays at 9:30 am for the JAZZ.FM91 Song of the Day. Every day, a local artist will provide you with the story behind the song.

This week, the JAZZ.FM91 Song of the Day is hosted by vocalist Joanna Majoko. The song you heard Friday, Feb. 22, was Day In, Day Out by Sarah Vaughan.

Growing up in Zimbabwe, Joanna Majoko was exposed to a rich practice of music and dance, participating in choirs, musicals, drum ensembles and traditional dance groups. She later relocated to Winnipeg, where she graduated with a degree in jazz studies from the University of Manitoba. Majoko has worked with numerous accomplished recording artists, including Otis Brown III, Ulysess Owens Jr., David Clayton-Thomas and Jane Bunnett. In addition to her talents as a vocalist, Joanna is also a passionate composer and arranger. She now calls Toronto home and holds a monthly residency at the Poetry Jazz Café as she continues to build a name for herself as a solo voice both locally and internationally.
