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 band and I closed out Moscow Fashion Week (sponsored by Volvo) with a performance at the Nooning Club. There we ran into some new friends of ours, Ilya and John - the guys responsible for the new clothing line Grunge John Orchestra Explosion (G.J.O.E). It's refreshing to meet folks in the fashion world so down to earth.

"Earlier in the week, we had the privilege of attending the G.J.O.E. show. Their line is forward-thinking, well-detailed, original, and practical. I can't wait for them to be introduced to the U.S. Stay tuned!"
