Heita hola! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection . . .

This month we check out Pat Shange's former band THE JUVENILES, something different from the IKEY GAMBA DANCE BAND and JOE MOSES, traditional grooves from SUKAZI MKHIZE and MAKAOTA AKALAME and the star-studded charity compilation LIVING LAND. Last month we brought you PATIENCE AFRICA, PRINCESS, NOVIDADE, ADZIAMBEYI BAND, The SOUL BROTHERS and SAKKIE.
