A Mercury Prize-winning musician, Benjamin Clementine worked his way up from playing the streets of Paris to performing in clubs and festivals. Clementine's theatrical voice is often compared to that of Nina Simone, whom the singer admits he didn't know about until people mentioned the comparison.

In this fascinating World Cafe interview, Clementine discusses growing up in an immigrant family from Ghana, watching his London neighborhood deteriorate and playing on the streets in Paris.
