Basia Bulat On World Cafe

Feb 3, 2016

Best known for her use of the autoharp, Basia Bulat loves stringed instruments, but she concentrated on keyboards for her latest album, Good Advice, which was produced by My Morning Jacket's Jim James. Bulat says she pushed herself out of her comfort zone to make her fourth album a pop record. Hear the Canadian singer-songwriter perform some of those new songs live on this episode of World Cafe.
