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!
Join us for this Birthday Party with live music and food at the historic Sankofa Video and Books Cafe on Georgia Avenue. Celebrate the birthday of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz aka Malcolm X. There will be a free event outdoors (Arts Under the Stars, and Crescent Moon Nights style) featuring performances and presentations from Bomani Armah, Radio Rahim, Words Beats & Life and MOMIES TLC (many more to be named soon!). There will be games and educational experiences for all ages, as well as free cake, and drinks because it’s a BIRTHDAY PARTY! This event is from 4:00-8:00pm.
From 8:00 to 10:00pm there will be a performance inside by Bomani Armah with Immaletchufinish (with more artists to be named later). Part of the funds raised from this party is going to pay for all the free stuff we did all day. This event is $20. Buy your tickets on eventbrite now!
