This week, World Cafe rebroadcasts some of its best sessions from the last several months. Listen in for some conversations and performances that garnered a lot of interest when they originally aired.

Two newcomers performed extraordinary sets. Meet the British Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine, who told stories of living and performing on the streets of Paris. Darlingside, a folk band from New England with perfect harmonies, is another discovery worth repeating.

Several sessions with veteran musicians also bear another listen. Among them is the performance Flamin' Groovies delivered in the World Cafe studio. You'll also hear from The Jayhawks, whose new album, Paging Mr. Proust,comes out April 29; the band previewed some of the new songs during our " Sense Of Place" visit to Minneapolis in December. And getting a chance to talk with Jeff Lynne about ELO, The Beatles and The Traveling Wilburys was a major thrill. Hear all five encore sessions below.
