J.S. Ondara performs a live acoustic set in WGBH’s Fraser Performance Studio. The 2018 NPR Slingshot artist grew up in Nairobi, Kenya and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2013 out of admiration for his musical hero (and native Minnesotan), Bob Dylan. Ondara learned English both in school and through his love of artists like Nirvana, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan.

This performance was recorded on December 5, 2018.
