20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: SOUTH OF SAHEL C60

Culturally and historically, the Sahel is a shoreline between the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. So this mix contains music originating from the latter part of the continent - that has generally been less influenced by arab culture. Which means more Afrobeat, Qaraami, Highlife,  Bikutsi, Mande+Yoruba Music, and no belly dance grooves. Full of beauty, life, joy and intense emotions - and perfect for the summer. Cheers! -Moahaha
