Mix: Mukambo’s Pan-Afrobeat Mixtape

67948425_2395090047216047_7825704088628101120_o

Twenty+ years after Fela Kuti‘s death, afrobeat seems to be more alive than ever!

Over the past two decades, afrobeat bands have arisen in the four corners of the earth, some paying homage to Fela, other playing their own blend of afrobeat, mixing their roots with Fela Kuti and Tony Allen‘s legacy.

This pan-African and trans-Atlantic Mukambo mixtape lets you groove to some of the best afrobeat from this past decade, made in Africa, Europe, Latin America and even Japan!
