This show was 20th in the global afrobeat chart.

Fortunately it isn’t so difficult these days to explore some rare music from Africa. Just have a look at those fine reissues and compilations which showcase a wide range of that particular funky music that only can originate from the black continent. Just check out our Reissue Label Special from 2011 to get the idea. For this edition of UV Funk it’s Gunnars turn to pick out some beautiful tracks and talk a bit about the artists. He focused on Afrobeat, Afrofunk and Afrodisco from Nigerias 70s.
