This is the mix I've had in mind since starting the downloads. Sai Hankuri (which translates to “Have Patience”) is a compilation of innovators and up and comers ranging from 1970's Nigeria to modern day Iowa embodying the glorious sound that is Afrobeat. As is the case with many of the worlds best genres, Afrobeat originated out of hardship and a desire for social change and is still used as social commentary and critiques to this day. There's much more to say on the matter, but it's better heard from the artists that created and were inspired by this amazing genre.
