Happy New Year dear flapjax! Pleased you're pleased. I find this music really joyous. Will watch the ball drop in Times Square from the roof at midnight. Wishing you a great year.

Let me recommend Africa: Biography of a Continent while we're on the subject.

Check this one: some fine makossa from a very unlikely looking singer.

Very nice nickyskye. I've really enjoyed West African music for years, and see Youssou N'dour whenever I can.

Thanks nickyskye! Now I will sleep with crazy awesome rhythms in my head.

I have some great African pop and hip hop songs I've collected over the years. I'm especially fond of Zambian pop and hip hop. There was a great Zambian mp3 blog that's now gone that I'll forever regret not making a MeFi post of. Hopefully, one day in the future, I'll find myself in Zambia, searching for records by K'milian, Ozzy the General and other Zed music stalwarts. Zambia, unfortunately, very much not in West Africa.

That said, fine post. I just wanted to talk about Zambia.

Oh God, not more of this west coast, east coast rivalry! :p

West Coast is too cool, east Coast too intellectual.

See, it really is all about the US!

Thanks, nice post.

Great way to start the year—thanks, nickyskye!

This is fun, lots of great sounds. I just finished watching Waiting for Happiness (a great film by the way, especially the cinemaphotography), and this site just keeps the music flowing. Thanks.
