The Funky Melting Pot

This weblog is about funky music delivered as DJ Mixes. We cover mostly Lounge/Chillout but try to keep things as diverse as possible.

RL143 - Choice African Selection (African Chillout)

August 28th, 2017

I have friends that keep asking me what my favourite African tracks have been so far. I can never remember their names and always mumble out one excuse or the other. So this weekend I thought it would be better to just bring them together in a compilation or two. This is the first …the second will pop sooner or later. There is some gorgeous ear candy here. Who cares what they are singing about? As long they have a firm grasp on reality and a strong feel for beauty its all good. Those concepts are universal – they are the only passport you will need to a world of music. Cheers and please enjoy.
