Only a few days left and I'm off to Accra...
For the past two days, I camped out at the MouNa internet cafe in downtown Conakry. The connection was exeptionally good and with all the German discipline and consistency I could muster, I was able to upload a whole bunch of pictures and a total of 4 new mixes. A big thank you goes out to Jonas who's hosting this mp3.
I hope all more traditional stuff I posted lately didn't scare away any of the Afrobeat fanatics... Here's a new mix for you guys: Some wild, early Beninoise "Jerk" (doesn't the first track sound a bit like Cpt. Beefheart?) and some serious Nigerian Afrobeat byIkenga Super Stars, Tunji Oyelana & The Benders and Smahila & The SBs:
