Here's the plug:
"J. Period & K'NAAN are pleased to present the first installment of "The Messengers," a tribute to Fela Kuti, Bob Marley & Bob Dylan. Episode #1 pays tribute to Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Nigeria's eminent musical activist and arguably the most influential artist to emerge from Africa this century. Fela grew to international fame with his revolutionary, political views and innovative "Afrobeat," a musical genre he invented that combined soul, funk and African rhythms. Join J.Period K'NAAN as they pay tribute to Fela by remixing and reinventing his classic work on part 1 of "The Messengers." Guest MC's include: Zumbi (Zion I) & Bajah (Dry Eye Crew) from Sierra Leone."
