    I've been listening to a lot of afrobeat lately and that stuff is incredible. puts me in a hypnotic state of mind and gets me right. in case you dont knowwhat it is here is the wikipedia entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afrobeat

    Ive been listening to a lot of the chicago afrobeat project on last.fm they have so many incredible songs. if you havent heard of it give them a try

    that's like sayin Maluma doesn't make reggaeton because he's from Colombia instead of puerto rico. this is reggae made outside Jamaica.

    Let's bring the angolans to the party too...

    This is Kizomba though, not afrobeat/afropop
