Playlist: Best of Afro-Centric Beats and Beyond

(Afrobeat, Afrojazz, Afrohouse and more)

Here at Colston Hall, we’re proud of our world music programming, over the years we have brought some of the biggest names in the genre such as Femi Kuti, Tinariawen and Africa Express, as well as celebrating the unsung heroes like William Onyeabor and upcoming stars such as Ibibio Sound Machine and Owiny Sigoma Band.

This is a playlist compiled from some of our favourite afro-centric tracks from artists that have played at Colston Hall or The Lantern, or simply tracks we’re feeling and performers we’d love to book.

In this playlist you will find offerings of afro-jazz, afro-beat, afro-house as well as some favourites from across the continent and around the world.
