Happy Birthday Madiba!

Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela!

One of the most inspirational personalities in modern African history is getting one year older today.

“The curious beauty of African music is that it uplifts even as it tells a sad tale. You may be poor, you may have only a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope. African music is often about the aspirations of the African people, and it can ignite the political resolve of those who might otherwise be indifferent to politics.”  – Nelson Mandela

Here is the soundtrack for your celebration of Madiba’s birthday: DJ Universe’s Mixtape “The House of Mandela Luxury Mixtape“, a nice melange of Afrohouse and Jazz.

Listen to the mix on Soundcloud.
