You enter a loft in a hidden place in lower Manhattan. It’s smoky from the hookahs burning on the couches along the wall. The lights are dim and all you see are bodies gyrating to the music that is causing your pulse to rise. Closing your eyes you are enveloped in the sounds of the Beat of Cocolah Vol. 5. Enjoy!

The Beat of Cocolah Vol. 4

This past month has been a big one for Africa having the World Cup hosted in a part of the country that abolished apartheid less than 2 decades ago.  In celebration of this monumentous affair, I dedicate this podcast to all of us who are connected to Africa in one way or another.  The draw of the country is undeniable, so much that recently our beloved blogger, Yacque of Cocolah.com visited the countries of Morocco and Mali.  Also this past weekend in Brooklyn, Prospect Park hosted the OkayAfrica affair featuring artists such as The Roots, Talib Kweli and Blitz the Ambassador who is from Ghana.

In this mix you will find genres that are influenced by the motherland such as Afrobeat, Afro Rock, Tribal House, Afro Cuban and so forth.  Hopefully you enjoy the mix so much that you make it a goal to visit the continent that has birthed so much greatness. Shouts out to the Ghana football team (soccer for you U.S. heads) for doing an excellent job making it all the way to the semifinals and Mandela (I call him Madiba) for being so amazing, even at 92 (his birthday is July 18). Happy Bornday Madiba!!!!
