On yet another blessed Friday, I simply have to share this video and track with you.

Beautiful production, great rhyming, and that hook that the female singer performs, man, it destroys me every time I hear it. Sublime.

From the rhyming to how these guys are just walking through a regularly neighbourhood in London, it’s unapologetically British. Reminding me of some of my favourite artists such Massive Attack, Portishead, Ty, BREIS and Akala who are all unique and doing their own thing.

Beautiful rendition of a classic song by Biffy Clyro. I would have given anything to have attended this gig.

This is my favourite song off of the “Undun” album by The Roots.

An incredible track and an incredible live performance.

I’ve had the privilege of watching these guys live on 3 separate occasions.

Once in New York City in Central Park, the other 2 occasions in London in Brixton.

I hope to see them live again.

Black Thought is a beast of an MC and the musicianship on display from The Roots is without peer.

This is a beautiful piece of music by one of my musical idols. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

I’ll be sharing many more tracks by Nusrat and hopefully other artists from Pakistan.

Pakistan is an incredibly imperfect and flawed place, but there is more to it than the negativity we see in the headlines.

There is art and culture and God willing I’ll be able to shine some light on it by sharing some of the great music that has come out of Pakistan.

Beautiful song by a beautiful human being. I remember originally being put up on Gregory Porter by my friend and hip hop legend TY. He shared a song called “Be Good” by him.

Gregory is a jazz artist, but oh soo soulful.

Check him out. You’ll thank me later.

Sublime. Simple arrangement but so powerful.

Reminds me of my time in Pakistan during the 90s.
