Podcast: Out Of Africa #13

Out Of Africa – An in-depth trip throughout world music and global beats from an African perspective!!

In this show, we kick off from Jamaica with the legendary Skatalites. Ska leads us throughout an incredible trip on world music!

We dive deep with the smooth piano jazz “with a twist of Marley” (and reggae) with Lee Ritenour. Adding some Caribbean spices to the pot, we stop in Colombia with Palenque music. We continue the trip in funaná from Cape Verde Islands based in Lisbon, Fogo Fogo…only stopping in London with Onipa‘s bass-influenced mix!

Music is the glue that connects humanity as ONE!
