Karabo Poppy, Davido, Laolu, and Msaki are amongst a group of 15 artists who’ve curated their own playlists for Apple Music in celebration of Africa Day.
“African music is rich and diverse because Africa is a continent, not a country,” Angelique Kidjo explains. “Its music ranges from Uum Kulthum of Egypt down to Miriam Makeba of South Africa, with many distinct styles and subcultures in-between. This playlist is not an exhaustive snapshot of all of the important artists and genres, but is more like a journey through my musical life with the songs that inspired me and the many friendships I’ve found with my fellow African musicians.”
