World Cafe Playlist for 01/29/2020

Leif Vollebekk joins host Raina Douris

Just before Leif Vollebekk released his 2017 album Twin Solitude, he thought it might be his last…He felt like he wasn’t reaching an audience or having fun anymore. But then the record was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize and his shows started to fill up. Three years later, he’s still making music. Today, we’ll hear songs from his new album, New Ways, performed live. And we’ll find out what it’s like to see music – Leif has a condition called synesthesia where sound is tied to color.
