World Cafe Playlist for 09/11/2023

Shamir joins host Raina Douris

Shamir’s latest album Homo Anxietatum is almost like the beginning of a new era. Shamir’s been a solo artist since he started almost a decade ago, but he says this album is the first time he really thought about writing for his band, who he now considers just as much a part of “Shamir” as he is. Shamir talks about growing as an artist and growing as a person – and how the sound of his music reflects where he’s at
