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 as we launch our new show “the Indie” with Byron Hurt, writer and director of the winning film “Soul Food Junkies” that will air on PBS the same night. Byron Hurt explores the health advantages and disadvantages of Soul Food, a quintessential American cuisine. Soul food will also be used as the lens to investigate the dark side of the food industry and the growing food justice movement that has been born in its wake. We will talk to him live on the phone, then follow up with a discussion with in studio guests who are having their own transformative experiences involving food and health. Looking forward to this show! http://www.bhurt.com/soulfoodjunkies.php
