New Mad Decent Column Travels Africa, Looks For Music
- Words: Patric Fallon
Some pretty interesting and most definitely funny things tend to surface on the Mad Decent blog, but one item in particular just caught our eye. The collective for furthering African music and culture Akwaaba has been given its own column on the Mad Decent website, called ZEMIJAMS (the name is a play on the regional term for motorcycle taxis, zemijans). Up now is a quick introduction to the new column, along with a link to a post about Ghanian hip-hop and Afro-pop, and a promise for more emerging music from Africa's underground. We're interested to see what develops.
