Africa In Your Earbuds LIVE! The Sudan Edition 6.28 @ The Ace NYC


This week our  Africa In Your Earbuds LIVE! series continues with a verrrrry special Sudan edition! Sudan's own DJ MoMA and Sinkane will rock the decks while we lounge and chillllllll on the couches and sneak in a dance (f'ing cabaret laws). We'll drink another toast in honor of South Sudan's independence, and show our unity with some ancient traditions (drinking). Once again the event is FREE, no list needed.

Come play our new #afrilibs game (get it Africa + Mad Libs, duhhh). Our best one from last week? "No matter how you fix a chimpanzee's computer, it's still pretentious."

For a taste of what you'll hear, check out our Africa In Your Earbuds mixtapes from featured spinners Sinkane, Chief Boima, Lamin Fofana, and DJ MOMA.

Watch the music video for 'Ke Star (Remix)' by Focalistic, Vigro Deep and Davido.

After sharing the remix to "Ke Star" last week Friday, Focalistic has followed-up with the song's visuals. The video show performance scenes by the two musicians flanked by dancers. The visual is stunning as everyone who appears is dripped up, and the dancers make sure the viewer never takes their eye off the screen.

The remix for "Ke Star" is hopefully a move that kickstarts Pitori Maradona's continental dominance. Amapiano as a sound has proven popular in many parts of the continent and some parts of the world. Davido is one non-South African musician who has embraced the sound which can be heard in his latest album A Better Time.
