In this session, we are joined by ALA.NI, a British singer-songwriter whose debut album, You & I, is a remarkable update on the cabaret tradition.

Set List

  • "Ol' Fashioned Kiss"
  • "Suddenly"
  • "Roses & Wine" (studio version of You & I)

The London-born, Paris-based performer was surprisingly candid during our World Cafe interview:

"I was at a point where I found it easier maybe to date men who were married, just because ... you'd get a really nice side of them. You don't have to deal with all of the smelly socks and underwear. And I wasn't like an aggressive, bunny-boiling Glenn Close woman."
