Listen to tUnE-yArDs' <i>Africa in Your Earbuds</i> Mix

tUnE-yArDs has long been noted for the African influences in their songs. Today, frontwoman Merrill Garbus paid tribute to those influences with a new mix she assembled for Okay Africa’s Africa in Your Earbuds series.

The half hour-long mix includes Ethiopian, Somalian, Tanzanian, South African, Nigerian and Congolese music. Okay Africa is a project partially sponsored by The Roots; it covers a broad range of music and cultural events across Africa. tUnE-yArDs’ mix marks the 22nd one in the site’s remix series, which you can see more of over here.

You can stream the mix via Soundcloud below.
