The Black Atlantic / Black Fantastic
2nd Sunday of the Month
I’m an Amsterdam, and London-based Capricorn raised by my parent’s record collection and shaped by Los Angeles underground radio. This is to say, I owe the development of my ear to DJs who understood the value of a steady listening practice and to listeners like my mom and dad, who took themselves to the local record shops to find albums introduced to them by DJs. Sonic Sunday School–Soulful Music of the Black Atlantic explores the world of cosmic jazz, dub, dancehall, roots reggae, funky gospel, and electronic music of the African Diaspora.
