World Cafe Playlist for 12/07/2021

Damon Albarn joins host Stephen Kallao

Damon Albarn has a fondness for collaboration, with dozens of guests joining his band Gorillaz over the years. His latest solo album is no different – The project started a few years ago, when Albarn invited orchestral musicians into his home in Iceland to create music inspired by the glacial and mountainous view from his living room window. This served as the foundation for the new record, The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows. Albarn shares live solo performances of a few tracks, stories from his life in Iceland, and the childhood dream that drew the Englishman there in the first place.
