Weekend Music Break

when the pot
From Luanda: Dj Djeff has Nacobeta, Agre G & Game Walla doing their thing in the new video for “Mwangolé”. There’s a standard success script for all those kuduro videos out there. Not that we mind:

Glen Lewis’s Shona tune “Ndiyo ndiyo” will keep South African clubs warm this winter:

Kenyan P-Unit released this track, “Mobimba”, last month, featuring Sweden-based Alicios. Originally from Congo (that’s Alicios), you don’t have to look far where they took their inspiration from this time:

Not entirely sure what’s going on in this jumpy clip for MoBlack’s (also known as Domenico Falcone) “MeKa”. Is there a remix out yet?

M.anifest is working hard this year. Here on a new collaboration with EL:

Talib Kweli went to South Africa and came back with a music video for “High Life”:

A first single for Guinean Masta G (Conakry) off his album “Introspection”. Produced by Ahms Beatz; the final mixing was done by Redrum. (More music by Masta G here.)

Kae Sun’s got a new album coming out soon as well (‘Afriyie’, dropping later this month). “When the pot” is a second excerpt (remember last year’s “Ship And The Globe”):

Samba Touré’s album, Albala, was released this week. First single is “Be Ki Don” (YouTube notes have a translation of the lyrics — here):

And your moment of Zen: this video for Ghostpoet (born Obaro Ejimiwe, who has Tony Allen playing on drums on his latest record). Recommended:
