World Cafe travelled to Edinburgh for the latest Sense of Place series, and today's guests won 2018’s Scottish Album of the Year. The trio is Young Fathers, and they each come from different backgrounds. Kayus was born in Edinburgh to Nigerian parents. Graham is white and Scottish-born. And Ali left Liberia as a child refugee. They join host Talia Schlanger today to talk about tackling systemic racism in Scotland, finding brotherhood in bandmates, and making massive music in a tiny basement in Edinburgh. Plus, we’ll hear tracks from Young Fathers' award-winning hip-hop record, Cocoa Sugar, on this encore edition of the World Cafe.
