def song_detail(request, pk):
    song = get_objects_or_404(Song, pk=pk)

def performer_detail(request,pk):
    performer = get_object_or_404(Performer,pk=pk)
    songs = Song.objects.filter(performer=performer)
    return render(request, 'songs/performer_detail.html', {'performer': performer, 'songs': songs})
{{% extends 'base.html' %}

{% block title %}{{ performer }}{% endblock %}

{% block content %}
<h2>{{ performer }}</h2>
{% for song in performer.song_set.all %}
    {{ song.title }} by {{ song.artist }}
{% endfor %}
{% endblock %}
