Saturday Sessions: J.S. Ondara performs "Lebanon"

CBS News Saturday, 7 September 2019
As a teenager in Kenya, J.S. Ondara fell in love with American folk music, memorizing parts of Bob Dylan's catalog. By 20, he'd gotten a green card, moved to Dylan's native state of Minnesota, and launched a music career, soon opening for artists like Lindsey Buckingham and Neil Young. Earlier this year Ondara released his debut album, "Tales of America." A deluxe version comes out later this month. J.S. Ondara joins “CBS This Morning Saturday” to make his national television debut.
