Okayafrica Audio: Sinkane - Africa In Your Earbuds #2

It goes without saying that the first edition of Okayafrica’s Africa In Your Earbuds Mixtape series is impossible to top (OK I’m a little biased because I roped the homie Chief Boima into recording it for a cross-post with my Ghetto Palms column) but this next one from Sinkane is pretty fucking awesome. Listen below and get the full-story–it involves North Sudanese dictator al-Bashir and 60s psychedelic Afro-rock–at OKA. You can also find out where he’s currently playing with his band Yeasayer (you heard of ’em). Full tracklisting after the jump.

2. The Sahara All Stars of Jos – Take Your Soul (Nigeria)
3. Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo de Contonou – Dahomey (Benin)
