At the start of his career, Jorge Drexler was living two lives – He was a doctor by day and a musician by night. Ten years after making the decision to leave medicine, he got his break, winning an Academy Award for his music from the 2004 film, The Motorcycle Diaries, and multiple Grammy nominations have followed. He stopped by in 2018 to share his story and perform live – We’ll hear that session today, as World Cafe’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month continues.
