On this edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN, Talia Schlanger's guest is producer Ian Brennan. In 2013, he traveled to Malawi to record the music of inmates and guards at the maximum security Zomba prison, and he came back with the Grammy-nominated collection, I Have No Everything Here. Brennan is in the studio today to talk about that experience, as well as the second album, recorded this past year, called I Will Not Stop Singing.

DJ Shadow

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 09:33:00 -0500

DJ Shadow joins Talia Schlanger on this edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN. Twenty years ago, he released the world's first completely sampled album, called Endtroducing. It was a game-changer in the world of hip-hop.

David Dye welcomes Scottish singer-songwriter, KT Tunstall, on this edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN.

Mariza

On this Latin Roots edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN, David Dye is joined by Mariza. She's Portugal's most beloved interpreter of fado music, which is a traditional form of languorous, sad music rooted in the country's culture. She expands upon tradition with global influences on her new album, Mundo, as we'll hear in today's live set. And Mariza will talk about her first fado album, which spurred new interest in the genre.

Weaves

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 12:12:00 -0400

David Dye welcomes Weaves on this edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN. Led by singer Jasmyn Burke, the Toronto art-rock group released their self-titled debut LP this past summer. You get the sense from their music that everything may fall apart, as each band member seems to go off in different directions. It makes them an exciting live band. We'll hear them perform live today, and Weaves tell how they got their start.

BADBADNOTGOOD

BADBADNOTGOOD join David Dye on this edition of World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN. The Canadian instrumental group became internet sensations for their jazz-hip hop mix in 2010, before releasing their first album. Along with four of their own records, they've since collaborated with a number of rappers, like Ghostface Killah and Mick Jenkins, which the band talks about today. And they'll play new music from their album, IV, live.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:21:00 -0400

David Dye welcomes Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros on World Cafe Words and Music from WXPN. They were immediately popular when they debuted in 2007, led by Alex Ebert and Jade Castrinos, who has since left the group. On the band's new album PersonA, many of the songs deal with Ebert's attempts to reinvent the Edward Sharpe character he created. We'll hear about that in today's interview, along with a live performance.
