Hear the warm, tightly woven blend of the folksinger's voice and guitar patterns, performed live in his home country.

In a session recorded at X-Level Studio during World Cafe's recent Sense Of Place visit to Stockholm, José González performs a warm acoustic set of songs from his latest album, Vestiges And Claws. González's music, almost exclusively played on nylon-string classical guitar, includes some choice improvisation. He also talks with World Cafe about a worldview centered on humanism and solidarity, and explains how different his hometown of Gothenburg is from Stockholm.
