Rucyl Live Set - FunkGodJazzMedicine Black Radical Brooklyn

Live Set from Sept 20th at the opening of Black Radical Brooklyn - FunkGodJazzMedicine, broadcast outside on the corner of Fulton and Malcolm X Blvd in Brooklyn, from a pink cadillac sound system designed by artist collective Otabenga Jones & Associates.

This mix represents a journey through time and distance by, in my opinion, exceptional artists throughout the diaspora, from the Caribbean, to the American South, East & West Coasts, ending with examples of the constant presence of Black Music Influence in new music coming out of the UK, touching every genre in some way. That is radical love.

Condemned but reborn. GoLokal explored the continuous cycle of life and death, deep rooted in our culture because of the belief that the spirit that animates the body does not die but is reborn; life is a journey and death, a pit-stop to the next stage. This concept is beautifully portrayed by breathing new life and purpose into what was once destined for the scrapyard. 
Each year, the Chale Wote Street Art Festival has created the platform for artists of all types to leave their mark on the city and visitors to interact with public spaces and submerge themselves in the outburst of creativity. 
GoLokal’s performance, Agbo Ni Aye: Enjoyment After Death, characterizes how funeral parties, world-renowned for their size and extravagance. are a direct import from Ghana.

I love everything about this. Halfway through you’ll see Rashaad in the frame using a Wii controller to trigger/orchestrate the sound bytes.
