KPFK’s One Track Mind With Guests Boima & Nora of INTL BLK – December 29, 2017


I had the pleasure of filling in for Kristi Lomax once again this week, and the added pleasure of bringing Chief Boima and Nora Rahimian of INTL BLK in to talk about their project, Boima’s music with Kondi Band and in the second hour, an all vinyl DJ set from Boima. The show gives a little taste of what LA and the world will have in store for them in 2018 as INTL BLK builds roots here in the area and expands to a number of projects, a few of which were discussed in the show. You can find out more about INTL BLK via their website, and also via Boima’s website, Africa Is A Country.

On a separate note, it looks like I’ll be filling in for Kristi for a couple of more weeks. Hopefully, I’ll be able to shake off the remaining rust in 2018. It’s been good to return to KPFK, and I’m looking forward to much more in the New Year. Tomorrow, as is tradition, I’ll be sharing some of the best I’ve dug up over the year in a Melting Pot Radio Hour episode. Until then, Peace!
