Audio: Chief Boima x Geko Jones 'Africa Latina' [Mixtape]

Explore the crossroads between African music and Latin music in this mixtape from Chief Boima and Geko Jones.


Chief Boima, one of our go-to selectors for music from the diaspora (who laid down the very first Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape), links up with tropical bass specialist and Que Bajo party host Geko Jones for this enlightening excursion into the sonic ties between African and Latin American music. The transcontinental, transcultural Africa Latina mixtape is a 56-minute gem "which touches on champeta, semba, ndombolo, morna, house, kuduro, and neo-highlife." Stream/download Chief Boima & Geko Jones' Africa Latina below via Dutty Artz.
