Music Spotlight – Chico Mann and Africa In Your Earbuds

Okay Africa - Chico Mann

As we catch up with the Africa In Your Earbuds series over at Okay Africa, our music spotlight this weeks comes from AIYE #11: Call and Response. The tracks were submitted by guitarist/singer of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra Marcos Garcia, or Chico Mann. Chico, with cuban roots, says to Okay Africa “It’s no secret that I love the funky, African music of the past. It’s an endless source of inspiration and in that spirit, I submit these selections. They are dominated by one band, Orchestre Poly-Ritmo de Cotonou. The simple fact is that the band is amazing. They capture many moods, their scope is vast, and their musical concepts are fresh and highly relevant.” Download this mix of afrobeat of the past below!
