Mix: Radio Mukambo #562 – Golden Age Grooves

Radio Masoda, the new album by the Cameroonian master musician and composer Franck Biyong, blends Central Africa’s widely influential Makossa music with afrobeat, Congolese rumba and soukous, Ghanaian highlife and other regional styles. A tribute to the classic/golden age of African music, and how Congolese rumba served as a bedrock for artists and musicians all across Africa.

Ẹ̀rín Collective from Bologna, Italy, also dives into the Golden Age of Nigerian music to create a debut album of fresh & contemporary global afrobeat.

We also listen to new releases by The Selenites Band (ethiojazz), The Sandman Project (Middel Eastern funk), Lindigo & SOFAZ (maloya), Bab L’Bluz (gnawa rock), Atàndá (afrobeat) & Ozferti (ethiotronics).
