Here’s a Kenyan “Benga” mix curated by DJZhao from Germany. Benga is the tradition music of the Luo tribe and this mix includes hits dating back 50 years. More than Benga though, the mix also includes music from the Kikuyu, Kamba and other tribes.
“I Love Kuduro” follows the lives of up and coming “Kuduristas” to bring the dance craze to the big screen.
The following are sets from Dancehall star Gyptian, Reggae legend “Mr. Singy” Tarrus Riley, “Living in Love” and “Can’t Satisfy Her” singer I-Wayne and Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi. These sessions make it easy to appreciate songs in their most raw form and see these artists in a different light. I often found myself unintentionally smiling while watching/listening to these sets, hopefully the same will happen to you.

They also throw an impromptu acoustic session of a few of their hits.
Sauti Sol have become the first Kenyan act to take home MTV’s European Music Awards “African Act of the Year” award. Lets remind ourselves of their talent.
