Conversations from the World Café

Urban Kismet + Eclectic Interest = Bonjay

Ian Swain is a DJ/producer and urban economist. Alanna Stuart is a stunning singer/songwriter whose mom welcomed foster children from around the world when she was growing up. Together, they are Bonjay, and their full-length debut album Lush Life is unlike anything we've heard. Bonjay's music feels like what happens when different people from different backgrounds come together on rooftops and collide in bike lanes and offer each other seats on subways and sweat in basements blaring dancehall. Hear Bonjay perform live, and meet two fascinating artists in this edition of World Cafe.
