Missed Mixtapes #10 – Okayafrica

As the world pays tribute to Nelson Mandela, the ‘Father of South Africa’, NTS Radio’s Dom Roarty has chosen a lovely mix of tracks from all over the African continent.

Mixtape #10 – Okayafrica No. 17

Number 10 comes from a series of mixtapes curated by Okayafrica, an online publication which represents the African cultural new wave. I chose the mixtape put together for them by the label/blog, Awesome Tapes from Africa.
There are just 11 tracks on the mix with each recorded from all over the continent. ATFA owner, Brian Shimkovitz, said he wanted to have tracks from all over and spanning a number of different decades.
