Some dope stuff here - new Whitfield Brothers and The Skeletons mixed in with the old world sound, a nuggy or two of soul and funk, a splash of dub with The Light Of Saba and ending it all with Knaan, Nas and Damian Marley sampling Mulute Astatke back to back.

  1. Hi undercover,
    as an african music collector and african traveller for more than 20 years myself
    I really like your selection.
    Almost perfectly fits my taste.
    I'd love to visit a place serving this music in Germany.
