African beats and Western rhythms unite in these contemporary tunes, from Cape Town to Bamako, on this world music CD.
On African Beat, Putumayo features artists who are as likely to have traditional African drumming, soukous and mbaqanga on their iPods as they are the latest European dubstep and US hip-hop. These tracks reveal that even in this globalised, hi-tech world, the divide between the past and the future is not as great as it may seem.
World music record Label Putumayo is committed to helping communities in the countries where the music originates and have contributed more than one million dollars to non-profit organisations around the world.
