A mostly vocal set on this week's podcast. Kavita Shah brings an amalgamation of cultural influences to her music. We recently experienced her perform, and had the chance to speak with her after the show. I bring that conversation to you between tracks in this podcast. Other vocals represented here are from Dana Lauren, and the incomparable Ella and Satch. We follow with a stunning vocal choir led by Bobby McFerrin. The podcast concludes with something new from Billy Harper and The Cookers.
