In this episode of “This Song” Benjamin Booker explains how songs by Nigerian artist William Oneaybor, the Zambian band Witch and the Caribbean band The Beginning of the End are all helping him shape the sound of the music he’s writing now, both musically and thematically. Then Laura Patiño of Holiday Mountain describes how a song by M.I.A. helped her find her power as a woman and her voice as a musician.
