MidWeek Mixx

Hello Good People!

So my newest find is The AFRIKA21 Mixtape presented by the Society HAE.   It serves as an opportunity to celebrate Africaʼs next wave of musicians, highlight the renaissance taking place on the continent and raise the profile of people and organizations working toward farming a new vision of Africa in the 21st century.  The mixtape features artists who are redefining African music, culture and the continent in general and serves as the soundtrack of the new African renaissance . There are 3 volumes of the mixtape produced by various African DJs.  

 There is also a message behind the music.  The Afrika21 mixtape project is a call to action, inviting the world to not only experience the renaissance happening on the continent but to support the creative thinkers who are the architects of this movement. 

 The Afrika21 Mixtape Project will fulfill this intent by:

  • Featuring artists who are redefining African music, culture and the continent in general
  • Profiling African based organizations using technology or the arts to improve the lives of or create opportunities for people in their communities, countries or the continent as a whole.
  • Encouraging the global community to support the emerging creative thinkers who are reshaping Africa. 

 So download, listen and enjoy!

And tomorrow (12/8), check out Les Nubians performing at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St NW.  Get tickets here for 20 bucks or 25 bucks at the door.

  1. Thanks for the video!! I’d never seen it after all these years. One Step Forward was one of those albums that hit at just the right time. And it’s one of the last solid albums I could listen to all the way through.
