Center of the world

It began in Africa. We were putting together some African tracks for a project so it seems like the perfect time to get put together a mix for your listening pleasure. Fela's "Water no get enemy" was the track that got us started on afro beat back in the day and although it's been hard to find a track to top it there is certainly an amazing amount of great African music out there.
