World Cafe Playlist for 02/19/2020

Madison McFerrin performs a mini-concert with host Raina Douris

Singer-songwriter Madison McFerrin comes from a long line of musical talent…Her grandfather was the first black man to sing at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, and her father, Bobby McFerrin, gave us the 1988 hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” The family tradition continues, and Madison shares her own sound, with You + I, her latest EP released in December. Today, we’ll hear a live performance of the inventive music she creates with just her laptop and her soulful voice.
