Bonjay On World Cafe

  • Listen:
    Bonjay on World Cafe Ian Swain is a DJ and urban economist. And Alanna Stuart is a singer, whose mom welcomed foster children from around the world when she was growing up. Together, they are Bonjay, and the duo released an eclectic R&B album, called Lush Life, earlier this year. It's inspired by the love they have for different cities and different people – We'll hear more about that in their conversation with host Talia Schlanger today. And Bonjay perform live in the studio. On the next World Cafe.
The duo performs songs from the album Lush Life, a love letter to the swirl of cities and the people they bring together.
Bonjay's debut full-length album, Lush Life, is a love letter to the swirl of cities and the people they bring together. It's what happens when strangers clink glasses on rooftops and collide in bike lanes and offer each other seats on subways and sweat it out in basements blaring dancehall.
