    Kwame Binea: Shakedown - New Music!

    in Music

    Singer/Songwriter Kwame Binea joins the show tonight to share his new EP "Shakedown."  We couldn't wait for a Friday Night Dance Party to get Kwame on the program - his music is too important to not share tonight!

    "Kwame Binea Shakedown" features four tracks including the group's first single "Let Go" (released in early April), their most recent single, "Hang On" (released in mid-June) and "Little Lady" and "Waiting," which have never been released. Musically, the EP showcases Binea's "roots rock" lineage, which is a fusion of rhythmic rock n' roll, ample dosages of infectious funk, silky soul, screaming blue s and just a smidgeon of reggae and funk.

    Cafe Inspiration with Bobbie Dee Inspires w/Father & Son, Daniel & Kwame Dowdell

    in Motivation

    This week, Bobbie Dee  introduces a Father and Son team who produces both artwork on canvas, and the embodiment of words and expressions to coincide with the art. The father contributes the art; the son produces the words. Daniel Dowdell and Kwame Dowdell will discuss their brand of inspiration, and their methodology in reaching and inspiring others.

    Daniel Dowdell is a native of the District of Columbia, a longtime resident of the state of Florida, and a true Global citizen. His art has been described as a primitive style of expression brought to life by his one of a kind oil backgrounds. Through his art Daniel strives to motivate and inspire people of all backgrounds, ages and stages of life to be positive about life and conscious of time.

    Daniel strives to create colorful, unique pieces that challenge the eye and intellect. Experience  has taught Daniel to appreciate the beauty of life, the diversity and simultaneous unity of humanity, as well as the constraints of that blank canvas which is the unknown quantum of time we are each given that remain suspended between date of birth and date of passage.

    Kwame Dowdell, a native of Jacksonville, is the Varsity Baseball Coach at First Coast Christian School.  

    Both have busy lives but in their spare time, they work together to produce an aesthetic blend of visual and hermeneutics for inspiring others.

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
