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!
This year’s MLK day at the Washington National Cathedral was attended by over 2,500 people from around the country. The excitement over the Inauguration the following day (and Time Magazine highlighting this event and your boy as the place and people to see) ballooned the normally large crowd. We were all treated to performances by Omekongo Dibinga, 2Deep, QuiQue Avilez, The African Heritage Drummers and Dancers, Daniel D., and the Urban Nation Youth Choir.
