Melissa Ross with Friday's Media Roundtable Guests

For this week’s First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross Media Roundtable, our panel of journalists looked at some of the biggest stories of the week, including:

Our panelists were:

Crocodile River Music

African ensemble Crocodile River Music is in town for a performance Saturday evening at the Jacksonville Arts and Music School.

Some of the members have performed in Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and one of the musicians plays the balafon, a UNESCO World Heritage protected instrument.

Balla Kouyate and Zack Combs, two of the band’s founding members, joined us with a preview - and a special Studio 5 performance.
