TRUE. It has been a long time. And we shouldn’t have gone M.I.A. for so long. Chale, we have been busy…and in a pretty wonderful fashion. 2012 began with a clap and bang.
We capped off 2011 with IND!E FUSE – a rousing live sonic parade of Afro-electro funk, rock, soul, house + hip hop – for more than 700 music aficionados at Alliance Francaise (more on that in the next post). Just five days into the new year and we got some warm fuzzy love from the homie, Benjamin LeBrave (@akwaabamusic) + FADER Magazine.
The article profiles one of our most beloved spoken word artists – Mutombo Percy aka @MutombodaPoet. Mutombo’s ever-incisive wit, magnetic verve and comedic timing is the common denominator for the all-stars in Panji Anoff’s Pidgen Music camp. At IND!E FUSE, Mutombo held it down for us – playing one part host with The One Show’s PY Annan (Bless the Mic) and one part performer with The Sankwas Bois (hip hop duo with @simpol_tinz).
