World Cafe Playlist for 03/24/2020

A needledrop show with host Raina Douris

Feeling cooped up practicing self-isolation? Maybe it’s time to start a band! Don’t worry – you can use almost anything to make music. By simply tapping her thighs, Maggie Rogers wrote the rhythm for her song “Alaska”; Sibling band Bailen started playing music when they were little, by banging on pots and pans; And KT Tunstall uses loop pedals and stomps on a tambourine to create the sound of a whole band, all on her own! Host Raina Douris shares lots of music to inspire you to get creative, while keeping your social distance.
