Best of The Beat on Afropop: Dancehall Inna African Stylee

With the Apollo Theater’s annual Africa Now festival set for this weekend and featuring some of today’s hottest African dancehall acts, Best of The Beat on Afropop takes a look back to 2002, when the first wave of dancehall artists springing from African roots and cross-pollinated by Jamaican style began to draw notice internationally.

The feature, by Lisa Poliak, introduces  Senegal’s Daara-J, Pee Froiss, and V.I.B.;

Gambia’s Rebellion D’Recaller, and Dancehall Masters; Tikken Jah Fakoly, Negromuffin and Jo Black from Ivory Coast;

and South Africa’s Bongo Maffin.
