NeoAfrican sound | Autumn 2018 Playlist
This is not a list of brand new Songs to come out of Africa, In fact, some of the songs on this list are rather old. This is a list of songs that I think fit into that genre of a new African sound.
I'm an old soul. I Love jazz, opera, and classical music mostly because they have gravitas; a staying power that anchors your soul in this violent sea of dreams we call life. It's weird, I know. But there's been a new wave of African music that just hits that spot... It's not the usual "tone-tone-semitone" rubbish we have been accustomed to - these songs have that same gravitas: fueled by the same thing that fuels all great music heritage, history, culture and a handful of magic.
Here are some of them. Welcome, change, welcome Autumn.
