Afrolution – real and original

BY JKW
LONDON - Zimbabwean born hip hop artist Metaphysics is featured on a unique CD/DVD compilation released by Afrolution records last week. The album, Afrolution Vol 1, is the first record of its kind to bring together African h


ip hop from eight different countries.

The album brings together music from both francophone and anglophone countries in Africa, including Zimbabwe, Malawi, South Africa, Gambia and Senegal. A spokesperson for Afrolution said: “We’ve tried to keep this album as real and original as possible. It was always going to be an eclectic mix of styles because Africa is a continent with many cultural dynamics and influences – we’ve done our best to represent that although we acknowledge the fact that we want to cover more countries and more female artists – it will happen as we grow.”

The record features music videos of all the songs on the album as well as interviews with the artists and competitions. It is available from Afrolution’s website www.afrolution.com
