Anon (Orvil right?) commented on blog post Welcome To Busseywood to highlight the upcoming Afrikans On Film festival run by the Adinkra Arts Collective (Sat, 10 Sep 2016 at 12:00 - London, United Kingdom). It is free, description of the event and registration @website eventbrite.co.uk. Be there or be square.
I've not been up on the African movie scene, bar the many Nollywood movies I end up watching each time I visit my parents (can someone teach someone about plots please!). The last movie I watched that was African-centric was Beast Of No Nation, but since it was directed by an American guy it doesn't count as indigenous. So year, definitely reaching down to see the movies on show and the new talent in African Cinematography.
Brother Polight! What a joy to watch and listen to! The brother is brimming with knowledge and inspiration. Just caught him on the Breakfast Club show on YouTube, featuring Metta World Peace. Great show!
Hip Hop and Reggae have always been partners, ever since DJ Kook Herc brought the Sound Systems to Bronx New York. OK, enough of the history, some music. Chronixx's "Perfect Tree" uses the same sample Hip Hop group (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) used on "Respiration". Great both versions!
