Just a reminder. Africa is a great continent with 56 countries, thousands of different cultures, home of one of the oldest universities in the world but also modern.

This is the Africa they never show you:

Now, these are some of my favorite African musicians in many different music styles:


Victor Démé – Djon Maya


Magic System – Premiere Gau


Habib Koité – Kumbin

Viex Farka Toure – Slow jam


Carlou D – Sene Regal

Youss N´Dour – Birima

Daby Balde – Waino Blues

Omar Pene & Le Super Diamono – Silmaxa (this is a great Mbalax tune)

Sister Fa

Pape & Cheikh – Mariama

Orchestra Baobab – Aduna Jaruul (1970)

Cheickh Lo – Set


Proverb – Stop think ( Say Something)


Remmy Ongala – I want to go home / Narudi Nyumbani 1988


Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi – Neria

Thomas Mapfuno –  Kuvarira Mukati/ Suffer in Silence
