[ Putumayo World Music / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 17 May 2013
African beats and Western rhythms unite on these contemporary tunes from Cape Town to Bamako. Features 3 new tracks!
On African Beat, Putumayo features artists who are as likely to have traditional African drumming, soukous and mbaqanga on their iPods as they are the latest European dubstep and US hip-hop. These tracks reveal that even in this globalized, hi-tech world, the divide between the past and the future is not as great as it may seem.
