While for the first time a generation of singers was discovering the
riches of Canadian traditional music, there was a corresponding surge
in the performance of, and audience for, songs from many other traditions-
Calypso, Revolutionary songs from Spain, China, and Indonesia. Songs like Wimoweh and Guantanamera became standard fare long before
they were heard on the radio. Malka and Joso popularized in Toronto
the approach taken by Theodore Bikel in the US, building a repertoire
of international folk songs.
