The 15th of October marks the anniversary of Fela Kuti, godfather of afrobeat, and is also the date Mukambo releases the second Global Afrobeat Movement compilation on NYP Records, including Jumbo System from Toulouse (France) who combine afrobeat with the power of a marching band. Their debut EP is our album of the week. The compilation features contemporary afrobeat bands from the four corners of the earth, including Ogun Afrobeat (Spain/Nigeria), Femi Koya (South Africa/Nigeria), Àbáse (Hungary) & Lindigo (Île de la Réunion), all on this podcast.
Radio Mukambo also digs into the new album by The Selenites Band (ethiogroove), a remix EP by IKOQWE (Portugal/Angola) and has tickets to give away for Nihiloxica (Uganda) at Botanique.
