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!
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to the Watermelon Man Album. A collection of songs I about and for my people working hard to change the world around them. The first track “Libation” is my new official theme song. “Energy does not die, it transforms” is a mantra that reminds me of how temporary our existence is but how permanent our spirit is.
