World Cafe traveled to Dublin for a new Sense of Place series, and today's guest is Loah. She grew up playing the fiddle and orchestral violin in Ireland, spent a few years immersed in Gambia’s musical culture, and eventually started writing her own music when she moved to Sierra Leone. Now, she’s back in Ireland, performing a set from her EP, This Heart, live at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin. And she’ll join host Talia Schlanger to share about her journey as an artist, including co-writing a song for Hozier’s very successful debut. That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
