Africanciones Vol. 1

Welcome back! I hope you're hungry for some more music cause I've got something special for you today. I proudly present "Africanciones"

This is a term I made up consisting of the words African and Canciones which means "songs" or "music" in Spanish. So simply put this is African music, but not just any kind!!

What I've compiled here for your ear's pleasure is a mix of rare 70's era African Funk/Jazz/Rock, Rumba Congolese, Soukous, African Salsa, High-Life and much more!

If you have a confused look on your face right about now, don't worry. This music is sure to make your soul move. So do yourself a favor and download this, then thank me later, LOL! Remember, this site is all about expanding your musical palette and discovering new sounds.

So crack open a beer or pour a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy the sounds!
