Shakara is an online platform that supports the increasing presence of African music and artists globally through a range of services including digital promotion, retail and marketing. With over 50 countries on the continent and dozens of musical styles in any one region, African music keeps growing in popularity, yet is still difficult to discover and purchase. In addition, many African artists create music that doesn’t fall under the title of world or African music in the traditional sense. Shakara is focused on providing access to the true diversity of music from the African continent and diaspora.
