World Cafe Playlist for 02/17/2023

Encore: Tank and the Bangas join host Raina Douris

Tank and the Bangas’ latest album Red Balloon is like scanning a radio dial – which is what frontwoman Tarriona “Tank” Ball envisioned. From one song to the next, the lyrics cover the politics of dating, being Black in America, watching The Simpsons, and the January 6th riots. On an encore edition of the World Cafe, Tank shares her own memories of growing up listening to the radio, where she discovered touchstone artists like Lianne La Havas and Lauryn Hill. Plus, we’ll hear a live performance from the whole band recorded in front of an audience at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
