Afropop Exclusive Mix: Eko fo' Show

Our first mix as Eko fo' Show premiered on Afropop Worldwide. Check out the full post here, and follow us on Facebook to keep up with the latest. We'll be at the incomparable Starvue in Bushwick, Brooklyn on October 28 with special guest DJ Mickey Perez. 

The Eko fo’ Show Afropop Exclusive mix is a seamless journey through some classic music from ’60s and ’70s West Africa, leaning heavily on Afro-funk from Ghana and Nigeria. From heavy cuts by internationally established artists including King Sunny Ade and Orlando Julius, Ghanaian innovators Ebo Taylor, and Oscar Sulley and the Uhuru Dance Band, to deeper cuts from Nigerian artists Mixed Grill, Tony Grey and Dele Abiodun, this mix jumps with hot percussion, twisty synths and comfortable, loose horn sections.
