AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #47: DJ NUNAS

Downlaod an African music mixtape by Mozambique's DJ Nunas.


Mozambique's DJ Nunas, one-half of AM ROOTS production duo & label,  is a veteran selector of diaspora sounds who's built a name from crafting eclectic sets out of hip-hop, soul, ambient electronica, bossa nova, samba and many other genres — always keeping them grounded in the continent — for club audiences in NYC and across the globe.

For this installment of Africa In Your Earbuds, Nunas delivers a fiery excursion into the AfroTech and AfroHouse sounds popularized by the likes of Black Coffee and Culoe de Song. Nunas wrote us that his mix is "inspired by [his] time spent living in Haiti and childhood influenced by African music." He told us,

I grew up in Maputo, Mozambique where the pop music of my generation is heavily influenced by Southern African music mostly played in three of the major cities such as Luanda, Johannesburg and Maputo.
