It’s impossible to resist the multilayered narratives and chanted vocals of afrobeat

Jon Sharpe
By Jon Sharpe, Chief Creative Officer

A heady cocktail of West African musical styles, American funk and jazz, it's impossible to resist the multilayered narratives and chanted vocals of afrobeat. Of 1960s Nigeria origin, the style still captivates modern-day artists with its prolonged instrumentals, punchy horns and congas and politcally charged lyrics.

Featuring genre behemoths Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango, Adekunle Gold and Fanga, this playlist has a 100% track record of moving bodies.
