World Cafe Playlist for 05/23/2024

Jordan Mackampa joins host Stephen Kallao

Before his music career took off, Jordan Mackampa was a chef, and he still sees what he does in much the same way — searching for the right people or the right ingredients to make his music. On the World Cafe, Mackampa joins us to talk about his latest creation, Welcome Home Kid. He talks about switching sonic directions on the new album and what’s allowed him to make music that’s authentic to him.

Listen to the session here.
