I’m very excited to introduce our 2012 Summer Music Playlist! We’ve created it using Spotify, a free music service that you can download here. It includes music of different styles from all across Africa, both old and new, crowdsourced from ONE members on Twitter. Click on the songs to start listening at your computer.
There’s music from Ethiopia from pop star Aster Aweke, some funky soul from Dub Colossus, a nice little song from K’naan and Nelly Furtado, and some Ghanaian-American hip hop from Blitz the Ambassador. If you have any recommendations to add to our playlist, tell us in the comments below and we’ll add them in!
Be sure to open the playlist in Spotify to subscribe to it. We’ll be adding more songs to it as the summer goes on.
