30 Jun LSP Pick: Asheru – “Funky DC” (VIDEO)
We have been fans for a long time, but with his latest release, Sleepless in Soweto, Asheru pushes his creative limits to create a meeting of the musical and conscious minds. That being said, this Fela-inspired track, “Funky DC” was on repeat for days. When the time came for the video, Asheru reached out to me about some ideas. It just so happens that the timing was right around the ground swell of support for the missing girls of Chibok in Nigeria. Asheru was more than ecstatic to lend his project to the the growing public outcry of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. As you will see, in addition to the fierceness of Ballou High School’s talented marching band, the Queens (Evelyn Bandoh, Candace Mickens, Goldie Dean, Wendi Cherry and Ayanna Patrick) and I got it in. Enjoy!
