“I expected my son to be on that level… I’m proud of him for being a good son with good talent.”
My man Fokis followed up his Olu Dara collaboration with a thorough sit-down interview. Dara has over 60 years worth of musical history behind him, and he details his humble beginnings in Mississippi. Of course, he gives his thoughts on his famous son’s work. Dara came to New York with only $66 to his name, and built his career through traveling with bands. This is well worth the time. Never pass up a opprtunity to sit down with your elders. You never know what you might learn.
