War came to Odessa / by Cyrus

Editing footage for our #RawMusic #Ukraine episode. #Odessa in flames, May 2, 2014. Via rap DJ, actor and political activist Big Brotha D. #music #travel #war Our man Oleg aka Big Brotha D aka Odessa's most dedicated hip hop DJ / actor / political activist just sent me a whole trove of video he shot on May 2nd, the day the war came to Odessa.  That's the burning Trade Union building, where 42 pro-Russian activists were killed. War and music and culture all somehow wrapped up, and I'm trying to make sense of it.
