Audio: DJ Sakir, The Beat of Cocolah Vol. 4


We stumbled upon this nice little African podcast/mixtape by DJ Sakir, who's holding it down in Brooklyn by way of Jamaica.  Created as a dedication to Africa, DJ Sakir partnered up with Cocolah to bring us full flavored mix, The Beat of Cocolah Vol. 4, including the sounds of afrobeat, afro rock, tribal house, and afro cuban music.  We liked. We think you will too.  Listen to one track off the mix, "Kwaku Ananse" by Apagya Show Band below, and then download the full mix here.  Tracklisting after the jump.
