New forms of African popular music fuse traditional and contemporary sensibilities, morphing into hybridized sonic fragments that connect Joburg to Nairobi via Lagos and Accra. On this Apple Music show, Nigerian-born DJ and curator Cuppy presents the latest African sounds in their lush entirety, be it amapiano, Afrobeats, highlife, alté, house, hip-hop, Afrobongo, or kuduro. Expect only the latest and greatest sounds from across the continent, and update your library by adding anything that vibrates in lockstep with your beat.
