In the last five years, Thao Nguyen married her girlfriend and also made a trip to Vietnam with her mom, who hadn’t been back since escaping the war in 1973. Both of these things changed her life – And they influenced the songs on Temple, Thao’s latest album with her band The Get Down Stay Down. Today, she joins host Stephen Kallao to share about these experiences, and we’ll hear some of the new music. On the next World Cafe.
