This week on #ArtBreak: the Megaphono festival is taking place around the city! We revist an interview with organizer Jon Bartlett and listen to various artists that are playing as part of the festival. Plus, we talk to two DJs originally from Zimbabwe about Black History Month and the series of events they're organizing, including Our Musical Roots: Origin of Beat. All that and much more on this week's ArtBreak!
