The Rendezvous with Kurtis Powers

with Special Guests Smoove & Turrell

This week, we wish Gil Scott-Heron a happy birthday. This coming Wednesday, the 1st of April would have been his 70th birthday. We pay tribute to Afro Funk legend, Manu Dibango, who sadly passed away this past week due to complications with the Coronavirus.

Kurtis (virtually) welcomed Smoove & Turrell. They chatted about their upcoming album ‘Stratos Bleu’, their long career, their side-projects, and life in music during the Coronavirus. We also debut a brand new song from their upcoming album entitled ‘Fade Away’. They talk up some of their new favorite artists, and share their #COVID19 Isolation Top 3 Discs.

We also bring you some new music from The Allergies, Alma Negra, Izo Fitzroy, The Mighty Mocambos and more.
