"To John Batiste music director and bandleader on the late show with Stephen Colbert. He did the interview at the piano Arkansas by you can find it now in the fresh air feed. It's the Ted radio hour from NPR guy Roz and on the show today, ideas about building more humane cities, cities that make space for everyone, especially the most vulnerable. Were you? Were you born like, yeah, I actually was, and I've spent most of my life. This is your home. Is your home since you became human in the world? Yes, this is accurate. This is not million dig bay. She's a writer in Lagos, Nigeria, but the kind of stuff I write is generally about rights based issues, human rights. So I focus on the rights of the Auburn, poor. Can you describe what logos is likely, what what would I see if I went there? So I guess it depends on which legal issue live in. Right. And I think that maybe this is universal where the where cities concerned like you can be in the same physical space, but because of your identity or your social occasion you experience completely differently. So for instance, the legal said I experience is different from the legal that my daughter's nanny experiences. So you're driving down, see third mainland bridge, and you look to your right or your left as the case may be, and you can see some of the fishing settlements that have now been termed slums along the side of the bridge. You can see the landfilling that's being done on the other side where they're reclaiming the lagoon in order to build some sort of middle class, entertainment, slash parking garage thing. And if you're going from the mainland island in the land. Scape of the changes. The houses are bigger clearly more expensive, cousin, nicer. There are traffic lights that work, you know, I think regardless of which legals you experience you do see the starkness of the differences along those class lines and that a quality get only deepened over the past forty or fifty years. Thanks in part to an explosion in population growth and changing economy class has become much more cemented. Class. Mobility is not as clear co doors possible as it used to be my grandfather's generation. It was. It was easy to send one or two children to school, have them access jobs, and then have them sin, their siblings, or their cousins to school and slowly lift the who family out of poverty in one or two generations rights. And that's no longer possible. Latini and the bay picks up the side from the Ted stage. There's so much that it's possible in Lagos and so much that isn't and very often the difference between possibility and impossibility simply who you are belonging in Lagos is a fluid concept determine by ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, but most visibly an often most violently class. Before Nigeria became a country. Fisher people from the inland creek started to come down the legals lagoon and established villages along the coast about sixty years later. My grandfather Ludo to adequately Koukoy also arrived in Lingle's overtime. He built in lustrous carriers lands via mapping out now, bustling neighborhoods when they were just waste high wild grass. He died when I was nine. And by that time, my family, like the families of those Fisher people knew bagels as home. Among the Uraba we have seen a co bully, Bali. Bali, which can be translated to mean that Lagos will come anyone, but that's becoming less and less true. Many lotions including the descendants of those Fisher people who arrived generations before my grandfather and now being pushed out to make room for an emergency that has been described as the new by.

So talk about your interpretation of the song and what's going on with that really dirty like March, like set of chords you're using or you gotta think of place, and you have to really put yourself in the story. My goal is to really be authentic and conveying any motion. And for me, I have to be in a place. So I'm thinking of the harvest moon.
