Nana Adjoa Big Dreaming Ants

Dutch-Ghanaian singer-songwriter Nana Adjoa just released her debut album Big Dreaming Ants. Greg featured her music as a buried treasure on the show, and now the hosts interview her about what it's like to release an album during COVID-19 and her musical influences.

Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
