Weekend Music Break No.100

Patrice Lumumba, first prime minister of independent Congo.

Music Break number 100 is here!!! Let’s celebrate the occasion with a playlist of classic African music from our younger years. I know that for me, many of these songs soundtracked long car rides and late night parties at home. Sean Jacobs also puts in some of his own favorites to reminisce on. No description this week, just enjoy some classic sounds from around the continent. And if anything sounds new, go ahead and follow the Youtube wormhole!

Have a happy weekend!
