Music: J.Period & K'Naan - The Messengers (Episode 1: Fela Kuti)

Good Wednesday Morning and FuseBox Radio Broadcast Peoples! :)

What I'm hitting heads up with today is a fantastic tribute music project by producer/DJ J. Period & independent/on the rise Hip-Hop MC K'naan - just been slow on posting it up.

They both teamed up together to do the "The Messengers" remix project based on the music, cultural impact and messages of 3 modern day music artists: Fela Kuti, Bob Marley & Bob Dylan.

Part 1 of "The Messengers" is based on the work of Nigerian activist and AfroBeat Music (a mix of Soul, Funk and African Rhythms) pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Check out the free download of J.Period & K'Naan - The Messengers (Episode 1: Fela Kuti) and let us know what you think!
