This Rough Guide highlights how rhythm is the defining trait of African music and features guardians and masters of ancient but living musical traditions. It's a seamless collection of tracks from diverse countries including Lesotho, South Sudan and Niger.

Featuring an array of percussive instruments, from the well-known djembe to obscure log drums and xylophones, from the ever popular benga beat of Kenge Kenge to the junk-funk of Sotho Sounds, this is a cutting-edge collection of trance-inducing grooves, which create an unstoppable expression of freedom and liberation

Undoubtedly some of the best African music you've never heard.
