Michael Franti and Spearhead
« on: October 26, 2006, 03:00:24 PM »
Do you guys know who Michael Franti is? I just heard some of his new stuff today. If you don't know, he is a musician from San Francisco who travelled to Iraq with just a guitar and a small film crew. He wandered the streets well outside the "Green Zone," talking and singing and learning what it was actually like to live in war torn Iraq. Here is a music video he made. They also sell the documentary he made and the CD he made on the website.

Yes, Franti is very good. I saw him last year at Mtn Jam and something happened to me.....i dunno, it was a good show though. But I hear he plays the same show....night after night.....all the jams are the same, sorta got a bad cookie cutter vibe from the spearhead crew.
