Sun Ra gets most of the credit for being one of the forefathers of afrofuturism in music. However, in homage of the anniversary of my past life husband’s day of birth, I am creating this mix in tribute to him. Jimi Hendrix is afrofuturism just as much as Sun Ra, Parliament and the many other afrofuturists that have followed them. He fused the music of his past with what was current at the time and made it timeless. Yes, my man is afrofuturism. If you would like an even better compilation of music, you can go to Sheepish at http://sheepish.org/afrofuturism/ and download its mix for FREE! You can also find some good information and other links about afrofuturism.
