On the radio: 10 months in music

Thanks to my trusty iPhone, I was able to Shazaam my way through North and West Africa, collecting songs I heard along the way, giving myself one of my favourite souvenirs. Some songs are not native to the place (such as many in Morocco and Ghana), but were heard often, or are associated for me with specific people. Listed in chronological order. Additional player on sidebar. Favourites include tracks by: Magic System, Afel Bocoum, Shatta Wale, Amadou & Mariam, Davido, Sarkodie, and R2Bees (who am I kidding.. I love them all). Enjoy!
