, 2019, Africa Express
From the publisher:
“Hailed as the most revolutionary force in popular music for two decades, Africa Express was founded in 2006 and brings together musicians from different cultures, genres and generations to break boundaries and offer a new perspective on Africa and its music. Each record and event is unique, based upon on-the-spot collaboration and filled with unique moments of magic; the collective have hosted trips and concerts in Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Mali and UK to date.
Africa Express travelled to South Africa in January of last year to complete an electronic album in just 7 days, a week of discovery, collaboration and music-making. The result is – 18 tracks capturing the fresh, joyous sounds of Afro Futurism, straight out of Johannesburg.”
The record features South African artists Moonchild, Sho Madjozi, Zola 7 and Zolani Mahola from Freshly Ground among many others.
