Nick Wall | 1 comments On my new website you can listen to over 150 songs with traditional roots from each and every African country. Please pay a visit –

And in the accompanying book, Around the World in 575 Songs : Traditional music from all the world’s countries Volume 2 – Africa, I tell the stories of the many artists whose songs I’ve featured, and provide some insights into the changes that have been happening within African music over the last 50 years, and reflect on how the music has often become interlinked with wider struggles for national liberation, for self-determination and for free expression, and the search for meaning and identity in a globalised world. The book’s available internationally in paperback and ebook form. Free review copies are available on request -
