One of the finest tastemakers of Afro House music have dropped an enthralling selection of tunes from some of the best talents in the game.
If at all you weren’t aware, Tanzania in Africa is where the first traces of humankind were found and quite naturally the continent was also responsible giving us the first piece of music. Fast forward millions of years, traditional African instruments were fused with House music, and the result was the creation of a magical form of music called Afro House.
The genre has its roots coming from South Africa where a fusion of Kwaito, Tribal, Deep and Soulful House music was brought together to give birth to a unique sound. Since its inception and inside a decade, Afro house has exploded beyond its spiritual home in South Africa with international stars playing at the biggest clubs and festivals in the world.
The sound has now infected the entire continent with pioneers like Saint Evo, Manoo, Afro Warriors, Mr Raoul K, and Black Motion coming from every corner of the continent with the biggest Afro House name being Black Coffee.
Another important aspect of Afro House music is its deep and wide infrastructure which lets artists from every part of the scale thrive with their music. Labels like MoBlack, Merecumbe Recordings, Deep Forest SA, Chymamusique, Get Physical, Sol Selectas, SoWHAT and many more are pushing the genre with quality and consistency and one of the tastemakers from this distinguished list is Madorasindahouse.
