In this episode Kwasi brings back Dutty Bookman to discuss the movement he has helped dub as the Reggae Revival after a panel at SXSW 2027. He also speaks to Koro Fyah of the Bevel Rock camp about his ABC’s at SXSW as well. Bomani interviews the founder of the Uganda’s Bavubuka Foundation, Babaluku, and their chief archivist Gilbert Daniels about Hip-Hop in Uganda and the Lugaflow movement. Bomani and Kwasi also discuss spirituality in independent music, and how the community discusses things like sin. A must listen!
Poet and satirist Bomani Armah talks about his Washington Post op-ed, “Okay, Barack. Now Show ‘Em Your White Side.”
Obama is “black enough,” Armah writes. “We need to start stressing the idea that his universal appeal is partly due to his being white, like all the presidents before him.”
