We stayed in ATL this week for a show with our fellows musicians friends Common Ground Collective, Vinx & Julie Dexter.

One stop to do in ATLANTA is @ MOODS Music. A Music shop you want to live in.  Eat in. Date in. Sleep in.The selection of music & videos are the MUST ! and the space ultra inviting. I remember buying my first 3 albums of Eric Roberson there.

Vinx & Les Nubians did a stop @ Moods Music for a little reunion/conference/Q&A  hosted by Ken Rye, with the audience. We spoke about being Indies artists. About the importance of traveling worldwide. We spoke GLOBAL SOUL. Really cool reunion. Thanks again to MOODS MUSIC & DJ Dave Soul !

We had an great time in Atlanta,  eating vegan food ( thanks to SOUL VEGETARIAN 2, great ginger root drink & food – we’ve been offered THE NEW SOUL VEGETARIAN COOK BOOK (BUY!)!(Read review by sister Assata Shakur) and to our sister JAMILA from EARTH CANDY for the interview and the amazing food she cooked for us – that Kale spicy Salad was off the hook !!!)

We visited Jazz 91.9 FM WCLK where director Aaron Cohan warmly received us – again ! Great Thanks !, for the  Morning Drive show, hosted by Morris Baxter. Always a pleasure to listen to this amazing broadcast who plays all the music we love, like our friend, caribbean jazz saxophone player Jacques Schwartz-Bart.

 

 

 

Les Nubians were invited by the Alliance Française in Atlanta to meet the young students of the Intown Academy in Atlanta/L’Ecole Intown d’Atlanta ( The Intown Academy on Facebook). This amazing school is a community based public charter school that opened Aug 9th, 2010. The school offers Atlanta Parents a neighborhood school that provides children with a safe, quality and rigorous learning environment, and FRENCH CLASS, taught from kindergarden to 7th grade.  Les Nubians answered hundreds of kids’s questions, sang for them a capella, taught them their song “DEMAIN” and danced AFRODANCE in a Soul Train Style !!!

Felabration was conceived by Yeni Anikulapo Kuti in 1997 to commemorate, laud, revel and fete the music icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti. This said historical event held every every October to coincide with the anniversary of Fela’s birth [October 16th].

The said annual festival of music, culture, arts and debates celebrating an African achiever has attracted world renowned personalities such as Hugh Masakela, Carlos Moore, Late Lucky Dube- It has now become an international showpiece with visitors coming from all over the world.” Felabration.org

EXCERPT:

“Traveling through four continents and six countries, The Furious Force of Rhymes is a fascinating look at Hip Hop as trans-national protest music.  Over the course of the eighty-five minute voyage, the viewer encounters characters as diverse as marginalized French Africans, Israeli Jews, East German skinhead punks, Palestinian MC’s and West African feminists, all of whom share a common musical language.  Originating from the ghettos of New York, Rap has found adherents in every country in the world.  Recognizing themselves in the oppression of U.S. Blacks, people everywhere have adapted the American street music to their own causes.”
