World Cafe Playlist for 02/13/2024

John Morrison joins host Raina Douris

If disco music reigned supreme in the 70s, the 80s saw a new breed of musicians take the helm. DIY producers flourished in the 80s, thanks to the advent of cheaper, more accessible electronic music equipment. On the World Cafe, correspondent John Morrison launches us into the 80s, as we go through the decades for this special Black History Month series on dance music.

Listen to the session here.
