    OLD SCHOOL HIP HOP SUNDAYZ

    in Radio

    c has always existed as an element of Hip Hop since the culture's birth in the early 1970s. The first rappers (called MCs) would rap over funk, reggae, dub, soul, and disco beats and would hold spontaneous rhyming battles that were meant to verbally attack an opponent called "freestyles" (freestyling and flowing were words used to describe the impromptu vocal delivery). Artists that laid the template for such aggressive spoken word set to a funky beat include James Brown, Gil Scott-Heron, The Watts Prophets, and The Last Poets. 

    By the spring of 1979, the first rap record surfaced with funk band The Fatback Band's "King Tim IIII (Personality Jock)". Later, The Sugar Hill Gang debuted in the summer with Hip Hop's most famous commercial record yet,"Rapper's Delight".

    Live Interview with Master Percussionist- Professor Baba Bradley Simmons

    in Health

    Bradley Simmons, a native of New York City, began playing Afro-Cuban and African percussion when he was 9 years old. From that point on and through his teenage years, he traveled throughout the City seeking out percussion teachers from Haiti, Cuba and Africa in an effort to enhance his understanding of these rhythmic forms, styles and techniques. Bradley soon became a consistent and sought after Conguero and shekere player for community and religious events including weekend long Bembes, weddings and many other cultural events. Bradley not only developed as a percussionist; he became a knowledge base for that which had preceded him, by the transfer of knowledge through the Afro-Cuban and African oral traditions.


    Bradley was soon very busy doing on-Broadway plays including: "Timbuktu" with Eartha Kitt and Melba Moore; 


    Bradley performed in nightclubs with Eartha Kitt, Gregory and Maurice Hines, Miles Jaye and Oba Babatunde. He has recorded and played with The Fatback Band and with drummer Norman Connors. Bradley has also appeared on Television including the Mike Douglas Show and the Cerebral Palsy Telethon. In 1990 and 1996, Bradley directed his own show at the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta and in Durham, NC, respectively, called "Cultural Journey: The Elements of Percussion".


    Bradley is the former Music Director of the Chuck Davis African-American Dance Ensemble of Durham, NC and has taught throughout the United States; including at the Larocque Bey School of Dance and the Gloria Jackson School of Dance in NYC. He has taught percussion classes and drum clinics at Berkeley School of Music, Boston MA; Texas Southern, Houston, TX; Wichita State University, Wichita, KS and North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC.


    Bradley is a Musical Director at Duke University in Durham, NC, where he teaches West African Music and History
