October 15, 2009

In honor of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s birthday on this day, October 15, the whole month is bubbling over with events across the country and the globe. Click this link to get details on a Felabration near you. As a fan of Fela’s music, I am working to get Birmingham on the worldwide list for October 2010. Holla if ya hear me.

For the southeasterners and passers-by, be sure to check out DJ Kemit’s Spread Love (Atlanta, GA) for October. Special guests include: Roy Ayers getting down with The Common Ground Collective, and on the wheels: DJ Ausar, Rich Medina, and DJ Kemit dropping the afrobeat, soul, funk, and house, all inspired by the Black President himself.
