Some pretty big news for you, dear fans of African music. Okayplayer has launched a sister site called Okayafrica, dedicated to the latest in African music & culture. It’s a pretty exciting development, and says a lot about the cultural renaissance going on in Africa right now. What’s more, we here at Strut will be a regular contributor to the site, bringing you a look at the music we’re feeling, interviews with artists, DJ charts & much more. To kick things off we decided to get together a list of favorite African tunes (new and old) that we associate with summer. We had a lot of fun putting it together, and are looking forward to sharing more music with you.
