Do we still dance as much as before?
The last years I have been searching for (dance) music. Recommendations from music websites like grooveshack, last.fm, spotify, youtube and more search methods have been a great help for finding new genres and artists. But can we dance? Yes sometimes I do find some pearls of danceable music from Africa and beyond. The diaspora makes good music travel to all corners.
If there is a new “Watafiti Project” it will be filling the Watafiti Music Server with music which will make you dance. Most probably with a tropical flavor or let’s call it “Southern” touch.
OK I am “old school” and do not find what I am looking for under “Eastern Vibe” (from Nairobi to Dar). Or “Bongo Flava”, “benga”? swahili music genres which can be found on the web. I understand there is no Spotify (50 million tracks) in swahili speaking countries? Their absence could be an additional motivation to fill the gap.
