African Music Store review Rate it

This is a unique doorway into the music of a continent, which plays a seminal role in so many of the sounds we regard as part of our aural wallpaper. The atmosphere is relaxed and upbeat. It's all here: from world-music crossovers (Ali Farka Touré, Youssou N'Dour, Salif Keita) to local luminaries (Freshlyground, Judith Sephuma and the lamented Lucky Dube). The golden oldies catalogue is also full of nuggets: Sipho Hotstix Mabusa, Stimela and Cesaria Evora to name a few.
