Lark Clark came to Edmonton to study music theatre at MacEwan University. After a year with Schola Cantorum and Pro Coro, Lark formed the singing group Juba, dedicated to the anti-apartheid movement. Juba took singing games and living theatre to high schools and elementary schools across Alberta and BC, as well as performing at folk festivals from Vancouver to Yellowknife to New Brunswick.

Juba was invited to Harare, Zimbabwe, where they spent a month singing in schools, churches and community groups. As well, Lark’s singing travels have also taken her to South Africa, Cuba, and the country of Georgia.

Lark has been programming world music for CKUA since 1997. Her radio shows have included Radio Mondo, Tin Roof Radio, Ballads and Bluenotes, Dispatches From a Zulu Village, and a gospel show, Showers of Blessings.

World Spinning
Lark Clark’s World Spinning explores how music reflects culture and shapes hearts. Lark’s passion is to discover connections and to hear music that’s completely new to the ears. We catch the latest incarnations as worlds collide: Somalia meets hip hop in Canada, flamenco meets jazz in Majorca. You’ll always hear lots of lively rhythms – Arabic, Latin, Polynesian – as we spin the globe. Featuring in-depth conversations with artists like Alex Cuba, Angelique Kidjo, Buffy Ste. Marie, or Zakir Hussein, experience the world through a multiplicity of cultural ears and eyes.

A Newcomer To Old Music
A Newcomer To Old Music is a program of exploration. Join Lark Clark to listen to “period instruments” like the theorbo (6-foot long bass lute) and the piffaro (teeny tiny flute), and hear Classical music as dance music! You'll hear interviews with the Alberta folks who are making this music: Early Music Alberta; Early Music Voices, Calgary; Edmonton Chamber Music Society.
