This edition of the small WORLD Weekend Mix features the following artists...

Wonderland Orchestra - Heavy Situation
Chicago Afrobeat Project - Crunch
Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble - Pelotera

Politics is essential to the genre of Afrobeat. The message can be described as confrontational and controversial, which can be related to the political climate of most of the African countries in the 60s, which dealt with political injustice and military corruption while recovering from the transition from the colonial governments to self-determination.
