Afrobeat, Afrofunk etc.

Postby Seagull » Tue Oct 24, 2017 1:41 pm

Recently I've been listening to a lot of music come out of the continent from the 60s-80s and would appreciate any contributions!

Love this stuff, great choices; funk is my happy music so getting to discover more of it is always welcome!

My picks:

William Onyeabor is someone I discovered a few years ago through I think the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on Radio 6, love basically everything I've heard from him so far but my favourites are Atomic Bomb

Other stuff I've found through radiooooo.com (the best place I've found for finding random bits of world music.)
