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!
Had a wonderful time catching up to my old friend and colleague Tim Jones. Tim is the director of the teen program at Martha’s Table, one of DC’s most rekknowned non profit organizations and the place I began my career as a youth facilitator. Join us as we talk about how “urban-education” has evolved from the early 90’s to now with many schools looking to incorporate hip-hop into the educational process. A great listen on the changing dynamics in our field.
