World Cafe Playlist for 08/21/2023

Genesis Owusu joins host Stephen Kallao

Genesis Owusu stops by World Cafe to discuss his just released sophomore album, Struggler. Inspired by Kafka’s Metamorphosis, the narrator of the album is a roach, who may have just picked a fight with God. Plus, we’ll get the backstory on his unique live show and performing with an orchestra at the Sydney Opera House.

Listen to the session here.
