The rich musical history of West Africa has had an incalculable influence on modern music, especially the polyrhythmic elements which helped to define Jazz, Rock, Funk, and other popular Western styles. But influence is a two-way street so many modern forms of African music have incorporated music from Latin America, The US, and Europe. The region has scores of styles from traditional regional music to Afro-Pop, including Griot music from Mali, Highlife from Ghana, Nigerian Afrobeat, nomadic desert drones from the Tuareg group Tinariwen, and Senegalese Afro-Cuban fusions. This is just a small sample of essential West African albums.Favourite Share
We’ve survived Covid and we’d like to thank all who have supported us this year. But we do need to make some changes: we’re going to continue to offer free delivery, but only on orders over $100. All orders under $100 will incur a courier charge, based on your location.
Regardless of order size, if some items are in stock and ready to ship, and others are sourced from overseas, you’ll now have the option to select Split Delivery for a small fee, so you would get in-stock items more quickly. We’re also ordering from overseas more frequently, so your import orders may arrive sooner.
Why the changes? Both import and local shipping rates have increased considerably, and we can no longer continue to absorb them.
