Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
Because Minnesota music is vital to The Current and our fair state, we created Local Current, a 24/7 stream of music dedicated entirely to musicians from Minnesota, available via our webstream, mobile apps or HD Radio in the Twin Cities at 89.3 HD2.
Local Current is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment's Arts and Culture Heritage Fund.
Please fill out our question form for inquiries about Local Current, or to submit music for consideration.

Laetitia Tamko dubbed her music project Vagabon to avoid people mispronouncing her name. But there's something deeper to it.

Vagabon feels very much at home making music, as evidenced when she and her band visited The Current studio for a session hosted by Jade.
