Playing tracks by
Luis Carlos Vinhas, Jorge Ben, Cheikh Lô, MixMaster Mike, Lateef & The Gift of the Gab, Ticklah and more.
A mix inspired by Jorge Ben's 1976 classic album 'Africa Brasil' celebrating the shared rhythm, energy and soul found in funk influenced music from Lagos to Rio.
A taste of tunes from the 1970s golden ages of Afrobeat and Brazilian funk and beyond, from the exuberant brass of Luis Carols Vinhas' 'Ye-Me-Le' to Orchestra Baobab's haunting 'Mouhamadou Bamba'.
