Known for its driving beats and upbeat melodies, Afrobeats blends Western genres like hip-hop and dancehall with sounds from the African diaspora. Coming out of West Africa and primarily produced in Nigeria, Ghana and the UK, Afrobeats has changed the sound of music internationally. This month, DJ Lindsey delves into the beyond-popular genre, playing a mix of new classics, as well as giving historical context by nodding to the innovators and icons that helped inspire the rise of Afropop.
