    Flavour In Your Ear – Week 2

    Motherland Muzik The Afrobeats genre has grown into a worldwide force and growing still. It’s seductive sound at times is hard to ignore and seems to force somewhat involuntary movement from the listener. The genre has enough musical dexterity to be used as background music for whatever you’re up to at the moment or even to open a session. In this instance we want you to get some party vibes started in your office chair…don’t pay any attention to the scowling you might probably receive from around the office.
