"Bam is the Godfather of hiphop and having

him on deck at Zanzibar is going to be off the hook," Zanzibar's booker

Cary Sullivan told

honor upon Afrika Bambaataa, the esteemed "Pioneer Award" in recognition

of the wide influence his work has had upon all genres of music.

Bambaataa has worked with James Brown, Leftfield, George Clinton, Sting, Bill

Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Jungle Brothers, Sly & Robbie, UB40 and Boy George,
