This mix includes finds by North and West African artists from the 70s/80s along with sounds from today’s emerging artists. I’ve always been intrigued by the similarities of Gnawa, Saharan and West African music and the domino effect that it created with its’ influence on today’s artists. Also, you’ll hear some commentary on our current world from renaissance men Jay Electronica, Fela Kuti and Damian Marley.
