WPIG Africa Edition

Every epic adventure needs an epic soundtrack and Africa is about as epic as it gets. Travel to the continent is diverse, confounding, fantastic, sublime, frustrating, breathtaking, heartbreaking, life changing – in short it has that indefinable magic which is the essence of travel. Defining Africa into easy generalizations is a fools errand, and like the continent, there’s no one genre of music that defines Africa. Instead, the music represents this biggest of melting pots and the lines between jazz, rap, funk, folk, rock all blur and everything is flavoured with ancient traditional sounds that make the music much like the place it comes from, completely compelling.
