International community (of Hip-Hop)



International Hip-Hop connoisseur Natalie Crüe posted this Daara J Family video in Twitter today. It doesn’t surprise me at all – she knows good music – but it was especially good timing since I am going to see these guys live tomorrow in the World Village Festival in Helsinki. This free of charge event also has performances by Tony Allen who is known as a musician on his own right, but of course he also was the drummer of legendary Fela Kuti and the main act this year is South Africa’s own – and absolutely amazing – Vusi Mahlasela. Did I mention it’s free of charge? I am sure I will have something to say about it after the weekend.
