    Lets hear your favourite african stuff, whether it's hightime, afrobeat, afro-pop or whatever. I love african music, what little of it I have heard, so I'm hoping for some good suggestions in here :)

    To get the ball rolling:

    I feel like I've already posted
    this at least twice before between
    here & the P&M sub. But it's
    absolutely worth the love. One of
    my favorites. Wild composition

    Already familiar with the first two tracks, and Fela of course, but the other two are new to me. Both are fire, really digging Peter King one.

    Going through the ones you posted
    right now. The Osibisa is hard. The
    cover art is dope too.

    Yeah, that Peter King knocks your
    dick in the dirt on the opening kick. lol

    seen this listed as Nigerian, but i don't know:


    saw some of his music listed above, but i'll add these from Ali Fakra Toure (Mali):



    my mom had a tape with these two ali fakra toure songs on it that i heard a lot growing up so they're really nostalgic for me along with being great pieces. shame about ry cooder interjecting himself into more great music, but oh well.

    also from Ethiopia, Mahmoud Ahmed:

    Fela Kuti is some good stuff but that's the only African music I know.

    Check out this guy's site. He spent a few years traveling around Africa collecting old vinyl. Some he rescued from destroyed buildings and such so much of what he's curated may have otherwise been lost. There's stories about his travels and where he obtained a lot of his collection. The menu on the right side has a bunch of different albums, mp3s and compilations that you can stream.

    I actually haven't dug around on there in a few years but I have some cd's I've downloaded from the site that are great poolside listening. Think I'm going to start poking around on there again myself. Lots of great music.
