Inspired by Africa the wonderful compilation 50 Years of Music and Independence 1960-2010. This is the place to post great songs from Africa. Let's see if we can come up with something from every single country on the continent...

I'll start with South Africa (since it's summer there :D ) and work my way north.

@mikalebrug glad you like the page, haven't updated it in a while. Can't now anyway as then it will look like the new myspace.

I'm so bad at geography, I didn't know Angola as a country. Just as the place where Leadbelly and James Booker did their time.

Niger
