This month, World Cafe is exploring Vienna's contemporary music scene for our Sense of Place series. In this episode, emerging rap star YUGO takes us on a tour of a neighborhood in the outskirts of Vienna, where his family immigrated to when he was a kid — and where a hip hop scene is growing. You'll hear how his mom pushed him to explore and integrate into Viennese culture — and how that experience helped shape his music.

Thanks to Austrian Music Export (especially Arianna Fleur Alfreds) for connecting us with artists and various other cool corners of Vienna's music scene.
