Race, Punk, and Rock & Roll

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

The Canadian rock music scene brings to mind bands such as Sloan, Arcade Fire, and Broken Social Scene. Despite consisting of great talent and creativity, the landscape of Canadian rock is overwhelmingly white and male. How reflective is Canada's indie rock scene of the country's diversity? Shehzaad Jiwani is the front man for one of Toronto's noisiest punk rock bands, Greys. Jiwani joins The Agenda in the Summer to discuss diversity, his band's new album, and the state of rock in popular music today.
