John Forté, Fugees-affiliate turned guitar-playing activist, is currently touring Russia with his band, performing, recording, and collaborating with Russian musicians, and filming a documentary. The tour will conclude with a performance on Easter Sunday, April 24. During the tour, John will be checking in periodically with Complex to offer his thoughts and images.

"The introduction to beautiful art ensues... Earlier this evening, I had the pleasure of finally meeting the lovely and talented Alina Orlova. Alina will join our bunch as we explore other parts of Russia, including Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, and Yekaterinburg.

"I cannot express how greatly I am looking forward to collaborating with Alina, on this project and beyond. Check out one of my favorite clips of Alina’s."
