Podcast: Radio Mukambo #521 – The Fifth Heaven

The fifth volume of the Global Riddims compilation on NYP Records is just delicious. Fresh tunes from Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Arab world and everything in between, by one of the curators on Groovalizacion Radio.

Radio Mukambo also pays tribute to the great Orlando Julius, Nigerian highlife and afrobeat legend who joined Fela & Tony Allen to jam in the afrobeat heaven. Also new: a new Congotronics album with Western rock musicians, and a compilation diving back into África Negra‘s golden age playing Congolese soukous with touches of Ghanaian highlife.
