J.S. Ondara: Knockin' on America's Door

Broken Record with Malcolm Gladwell, Rick Rubin, and Bruce Headlam - May 14, 2019

Bruce Headlam discovered J.S. Ondara listening to his car radio late last year. And with a great showing at South By Southwest and a spot opening for Neil Young this summer, it seems like the rest of America is  discovering him too. In this episode of Broken Record, J.S. Ondara talks about leaving his native Kenya six years ago for Minnesota — the home of his idol, Bob Dylan — and creating his debut album, "Tales of America".
