Hey TheBlackList!

From Nigeria to Jamaica to Mexico, this week's musical journey spans continents and generations. We're unpacking the historic collaboration between Afrobeat scion Seun Kuti and reggae heir Damian Marley, proving that musical rebellion runs in the family. Then, prepare to be surprised as we reveal the African roots of the Latin classic 'La Bamba'. As always, we've got our finger on the pulse of NYC's  music scene - check out our curated list of upcoming African and/or Afro-centric inspired gigs. Your voice matters to us, so don't forget to weigh in via the survey at the bottom of the page.
