Afropop Soundsystem

Fri. 12/24: Afropop Soundsystem has one eye on Africa and one on the world. We dig deep into the African digital domain to uncover songs and artists little known across the Atlantic.

We plunge into sexy kuduro music from Angola; bubu music from Sierra Leone, jagwa from Tanzania as well as the latest sensations in the kwaito scene in South Africa and the hyperactive ndombolo sounds from Kinshasa. Get ready to enjoy some of the continent's choice hot spots--from Lagos to Dar Es Salaam. Guided by deejay Michael Ndaribamare and producer Wills Glasspiegel, Afropop Soundsystem will challenge Hawaiian-shirt-wearing world music. Expect politics, yodels, break-beats, and club crushers.
