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!
The guys in this week’s Barbershop discuss a recent cartoon published by The New York Post, which many say depicts Obama as a chimpanzee shot dead by police (the paper has since offered an apology). Also, Illinois Sen. Roland Burris is back in the hot seat and baseball star Alexander “A-Rod” Rodriguez explains what he describes as a “stupid” decision to experiment with steroids.
Hear views from blogger Jimi Izrael, artist Bomani Armah, civil rights attorney Arsalan Iftikhar and syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette.
