Super Mama Africa

Not only humans are native to Africa, also many popular music styles find its origin on this continent. Africa is the heartbeat of the world and the mother of many different genres. Jazz, blues, son, mambo, calypso, reggae, soul, funk and hiphop all have their roots in Africa. This ‘western’ music, for its part, inspired African musicians. In this hour we skip from one part of the Atlantic Ocean to the other. Remarkable is that the music sometimes forms a perfect match, although sometimes the artists are born thousands of kilometers from each other. Of course all contributions of this broadcast are danceable!
