    Winter Cool Down Mix

    Winter Cool Down Mix

    A beautiful mix of meditative grooves from Sene-Gambia as well as a track from a friend down in South Africa (big up lagos disco machine) and even a vintage tune from The Police.

    More specifically, you will hear some enchanting Korah melodies balanced by strong bass lines, haunting vocals, ancient rhythms pounded out on a calabash, rock inspired bass lines and sandalwood infused up-beat electronica and a little balafone vs piano jazz action.

    Let the sounds take your imagination some were!
