Work Station: Afro

Traveling this year I realized that Afrobeat, A genre of music most Nigerian and West African jams fall under is getting popular internationally, being played more and more in mainstream settings ever since big groups such as Major Lazer have released hits in collaboration with a slew of African artists in the last year. Nowadays you can hear an Afrobeat track in a wide range of places. From Nightclubs in Addis to coffee shops in Berlin or a Nike store in Budapest. So this week it is a playlist of my most recent favorite African sounding songs from various artists.
