This track was created on August 17, 2015 to celebrate the life of Marcus Garvey. It might soon appear on a larger project looking at who owns National Heroes in Jamaica
5 years ago I imagined and sounded out the OGUN GARVEY series. I can only remember wanting to represent a figure that was a combination of Marcus Garvey and Ogun the Yoruba Orisha . OGUN GARVEY would be an African experiencing life with a deep awareness of memory and responsibility to Africa.
My mother taught me about the importance of sound as a part of our knowing, memory and experience of life.
Every Friday night i host the Electro magnetic radiation on Zanj Radio. For two hours i experiment and explore djing and sound art.
