Basia Bulat On World Cafe
World Cafe's Sense of Place spotlight on Toronto kicks off with a session from singer-songwriter Basia Bulat, who grew up in Little Poland on the east side of Toronto.
Bulat's new album, Tall Tall Shadow, marks a departure from her previous releases, including the Polaris Prize-nominated Oh, My Darling. With a shift away from folk, the new record features production from Arcade Fire bassist-guitarist Tim Kingsbury and producer Mark Lawson, who won a Grammy for Arcade Fire's album The Suburbs.
During this session, Bulat plays a solo set with four different instruments, including autoharp and the charango. In a conversation with host David Dye, she discusses her favorite parts of Toronto.
