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!
I apologize in advance for the poor sound quality. This was a great interview with Mazi, head of one of the foremost art and education non-profits in Washington D.C., Words Beats & Life. Listen as we discuss the genesis of his organization, and his educational experience as the “detention kid” in middle school, to his passion for speaking to the kid at the back of the room when he is in front of a school assembly.
