2020-05-22 Songs of Better Days + Kobo Town Interview

Drew Gonsalves and Calypso Rose

We talk with Drew Gonsalves of Kobo Town about his music, and what he’s doing during lockdown. Also, we hear songs about brotherhood, togetherness, and unity. Why are there so many of these? Because we’re better together, clearly. Even if right now we have to stay a bit apart.
