Keeping up with the latest dance moves from Africa can be seriously exhausting. One moment you are on that Azonto tip then you wake up the next day to find out that Skelewu is what’s hot at the moment.

Thankfully, de centre de danse urbaines au Sengal, have put together this cool A-Z of African dance moves that are reigning.

I’ll be working on my Coupe Decale and Flekele this weekend 😀

Sunday just keeps getting better. After a bad ass cardio session I decided to hit the web for a quick looksy on what new sounds are trending. Okay Africa is always a good place to start.

I present to you The Ibibio Sound Machine, an eight piece band that is dedicated to revitalizing Afro funk for the 70s & 80s with firm foundation in electronica. The band’s front lady, Eno Williams,  a British songstress of Nigerian heritage, writes her songs based on folklore from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria that her parents would tell her as a kid.

Your body can’t help but runaway to, “The Talking Fish (Asem U Sem Iyak). The plucky guitar rhythms and slinky percussion, and wonky electronics is reminiscent of the Nigerian disco-funk music movement of the 1970s.

We need to get them down to Abuja ASAP!
