8 tracks that prove how good African music is

Room19 put on a party a while back that “celebrated all african music culture”.


The Dublin collective took over Wigwam on January 14, playing music that stretches from “Fela, Femi and Onyeabor right the way across Africa and onto modern music maestros such as Daphi, Auntie Flo & Faze Action…”

We asked the Room19 crew to give us their 8 favourite tracks from the great continent of Africa. We don’t envy them having to narrow it down that much…

Check out their selections below.

1. Fela Kuti – Opposite People

2. William Onyeabor – Body and Soul


3. Faze Action – Mangwana

4. Haffi Deo – Tabu Ley

5. Marijata – No Condition Is Permanent

6. Lijadu Sisters – Orere elegigbo

7. Celestine Ukwu – Okwukwe Na Nchekwube

8. El Rego – E Nan Mian Nuku
