Afrika21 mixtape series

Just next to your collection of Africa-in-your-earbuds mixtapes on your digital music shelve, you should leave some space for this amazing mixtape series: AFRIKA 21 THE MIXTAPE.

I would describe Africa 21 as the Back-to-the-Future version of African music. All four so far released mixtapes by Society HAE are great selections of songs and artists that are currently shaping African music in different genres/ countries. These mixtapes are important contributions in drawing the contours of the current African music Renaissance and in this process shaping a new African sound which is still under-represented, under-recognized and at best misunderstood by Western mainstream media.

See it as an artistic manifesto for the African music Renaissance

Just a Band were once told that they „were too far ahead, like five years ahead“. If you want to hear how five-year-ahead-music sounds like, listen to and download these four mixtapes here. I will keep you updated on JusiILove on new Africa21-releases.
