Let’s Start What We Have Come into the Room to Do

Just in time for our hometown show at the Cutting Room (Friday March 4th at 7:30pm), here’s a new playlist for you guys. This one is a collection of my favorite musicians from the African Diaspora and the American artists they influenced. A lot of this is stuff I grew up listening to in my house: a lot of Fela Kuti and some artists associated with Paul Simon’s “Graceland” album, one band I’ve seen live in Park Slope, Brooklyn- the Mandingo Ambassadors, and more. I hope you dig it. I’ve got 28 days to figure out what I’ll do next! -JN
