 Welcome along to my African extended mix, my first after our long summer break, in this mix, you will hear a spread of Jazz from the continent of Africa.

As I was carried away preparing for this mix, what started as around a one-hour mix grew into a two-hour mix.

The music I select for you will be unlike anything else you’ll hardly hear elsewhere, my playlists are always uncompromising, bold and sometimes challenging, often changing in tempo and style to avoid getting stuck into the same groove. Bringing together music I think the world needs to hear and mainstream music channels so often overlook.
