SIJI x Ijo (Video)

Check out this visual interpretation sent from Lagos, Nigeria where artists Siji collaborated with Alix Alveratze to produce their classic single “Ijo”.  I get flustered with a lot of music submissions but I love this vibe and the dancing of this video so I decided to share it with you guys.  What do you guys think?

Les Nubians- Liberté

I woke up this morning feeling like death but after downloading Les Nubians new single “Liberte” I am no longer complaining and feel more “liberated” then yesterday. Just a little background; “liberte” was the names of the national anthem of Guinea which means “Liberty”. Les Nubians are currently on tour where they stopped in my area, Oakland Ca. at Yoshi’s. Although it wasn’t 1998 for me, I remember their introduction into the world with their hit single “Makeda” which was a big eye opener for the US after other African artists like Fela who paved the way for the exposure of African Music worldwide. You can check out their website for the exclusive downloads, tour dates, and more!
