Teintée Africaine

Our flagship playlist series celebrates popular African music within the continent and the diaspora. Over time, we’ve come to marvel at the ingenious ways our artists blend traditional African music genres with modern popular styles. And we felt it would only be right to highlight that for the people ‘dem. You will notice that our Teintée Africaine playlists have evolved in scope and tenor as we’ve gone along to build them. To make sure you get the most out of them, we also highlights the works (albums, compilations, EPs…) that have mostly driven each edition. (We look forward to soon bring you additional insights from the artists themselves!). Below you can dig into each of the Teintée Africaine editions we’ve put out so far.
