Juma Nature - Bongo Flava
There's a new sound that's been developing in Tanzania in the past decade, and it's called Bongo Flava.
Bongo Flava incorporates Afrobeat, Dancehall, and Hip Hop beats, with arabesque Swahili lyrics and some English phrases - all together to combine many aspects of the Global Hip Hop scene with a distinctly East African flavor.
Bongo Flava is HOT! Check out this sick video from Juma Nature for his song Africa Number One. I dare you to listen and NOT get this song in your head...
