Music Spotlight – DJ Moma and Africa In Your Earbuds


Our music spotlight today comes from the Africa In Your Earbuds series from Okay Africa, the cultural site focusing on art, music, and politics from Africa and the Diaspora. In Africa In Your Earbuds #18, New York DJ with Sudanese roots, DJ Moma mixes African classics with modern tracks from the Diaspora. DJ Moma says of the mix to Okay Africa, “half of the tracks are by African artists fusing elements of funk, soul and house in their production; and the remaining are by Western artists borrowing from African music or collaborating with African musicians and singers.” The combination makes for an eclectic mix.
