Teintée Africaine: Jecha

Back with another one! As expected, the big shots (artists representing Ghana, Kenya Nigeria, South Africa, and Tanzania) are here. The  dominant genres in African Pop (afrobeats, amapiano, bongo flava, coupé-décalé, gengetone, kompa, ndombolo, etc) can be found in whole, blended, or hybrid forms.

For us, we can only but be proud of the constant innovation, cross-country collaborations, boundary-pushing and redefining of afro-fusion/afropop that draws from a rich tapestry of genres and their offshoots. We’ve also made it a point to highlight music or movements from countries that usually don’t get much shine on the continental stage. Thusly, we made a concerted effort to have more representatives  of the lusophone countries throughout.
