    Meet Dexter Story: Maker of African-Inspired Musical Magic

    Watch Story tell FM's Anthony Valadez how Ethiopian music and a "community garden" of collabs led to his new album.

    On the heels of the release of his new album, Wondem, L.A.’s Dexter Story sat down among stacks and stacks of vinyl to tell Crate Diggers host and FM Collective videographer Anthony Valadez about the record’s African roots, how “so many great artists” worked on it with him, and exactly what inspires this producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. Check out the video in the player above.

    “There are 83 ethnic groups in Ethiopia and there’s something that just kind of speaks to me in their music,” Story says of Wondem’s sonic origins.
