African music is many things to many people on a continent of more than a billion people. We want you to be smart about the music culture, its history and performers coming out of the continent. We describe African music with this quote from Nelson Mandela - “The curious beauty about African music is that it uplifts even as it tells a sad story.”— Nelson Mandela

Our goal is to help you stay smart about what's happening in Africa so that you can form factual opinions rather than trust only what you see in western outlets about the continent. We work to provide you with the information you need to be smart about Africa.

We deliver lifestyle news in multiple formats including photos, infographics, exclusive stories, interviews, video stories, audio podcasts, and traditional articles from writers and contributors across the continent.
