Under African Skies

1 Mar

I’m kind of at a loss trying to describe this playlist…..it’s just jubilant, a perfect reflection of its people. The late great Joe Strummer says it best: “honey for the soul”. Africa has it all – the classics made popular by the west, dirty funk, afro jazz, afro beat, and a saxophone that just won’t quit (Boyoyo Boys!!!). May it transform your next commute, cleaning session, workout, life moment. Hakuna Matata!
