“It's not fantasy. It's imagining...What does it look like to live with a community of people I get along with and don't necessarily get along with.”

Musician, teacher, community member, and caster of musical spells, Esperanza Spalding, joins Helga mere weeks before her most recent Grammy win to talk about sustainability, what it means to be a part of a community and how to find the “the yum” in things. 

Esperanza Spalding is a bassist, vocalist and composer who, “like most organisms growing in response to their environment… is emerging into something else she does not yet understand…” She is also the 62nd Grammy Award Winner for Best Jazz Vocal for her 2019 album “12 Little Spells” which is out now.
