As the singer and Gaita player for the Austin based Afro Columbian band Superfónicos, Jaime Ospina often finds musical inspiration in some pretty interesting places. In this episode, Jaime talks about his love for Gary Clark Jr’s song “When My Train Pulls In” and how the Blues Brothers soundtrack pushed him to discover roots music from his own country. Plus, he tells us how African American music can help us all survive and thrive in an increasingly chaotic world.
