The Tropicals with Jennifer Hudson on Good Morning America!

Needless to say, today was long as ever! I was up at 2:45a, drove to Port Canaveral by 5 and did the taping for Good Morning America at 8 – we performed for the christening of Disney’s newest ship – the Dream. A lot of fun and the show went very well; plus sharing the stage with Jennifer Hudson and Sam Champion made for a Great Morning!! I’m tired! Afterwards, I drove home to do a recording session by noon and now I’m posting this before I head out to another session… music, music and more music! I can’t... Read More ››

Puerto Rico, La Isla Me Encanto!

Goin’ Native traveled to the gorgeous Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico this last weekend to check out the local music scene there. We were looking for Bomba & Plena (we’ve had enough of Salsa) but instead we came across a musical treat at a beautiful creole restaurant which was referred by a friend, local entertainer, Edgar Rios. The occasion was Sunday brunch, at the very popular upscale eatery, Ajili Mojili, in the Condado district of San Juan. The service was the best and the food was great but I was even more impressed by the local quartet which they... Read More ››

JoJo Kuo in the NY Times, Drumming for Fela

By now, every theatergoer on Broadway has heard of the Nigerian musician Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Jojo Kuo, 50, an Afropop drummer from Cameroon, played with Fela — twice. He shared his recollections with Ozier Muhammad for the seventh installment of “Sounds From Uncommon Spaces.” His remarks have been condensed and edited for brevity and clarity.   I met Fela in 1979 in Lagos, Nigeria, on a gig there. When I first tried to play with Fela, I didn’t know exactly what was going on with the music. I couldn’t get it psychologically, and the language was difficult because it was... Read More ››
