Break out the tissues, because Aurora says, "I have always enjoyed watching my songs make people cry."

In this World Cafe session, the Norwegian artist will hang your feelings out to dry with stirring performances from her dark, lush 2016 debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend. She also shares her musings on a bunch of seeming impossibilities: how a self-described "weird kid" from a tiny farm in Norway exploded into international fame, how a 20-year-old can muster an oceans-deep emotional maturity and how a song that makes you cry can also make you dance a moment later.
