Sangoma: The African Beat Tape is a creation by 20-year-old Nigerian producer (and Howard University student) Chisom Uzosike. The EP fusesclassic, golden age Hip-Hop and Nigerian and Ghanaian highlife music. An African Nostalgia is what we would like to call it.This unique EP, will hit you in your soul and take you back to your roots. Yes, YOUR roots. We all descended from Africa anyway. With a chill twist to the classic African and Hip Hop sounds, the tape will make you fall in love with the style of this budding producer.
We’ll leave you with a description of the mixtape by the producer himself, Chisom Usosike.
“A ‘Sangoma’ is a traditional Zulu herbsman/spiritual leader, much like a ‘Dibia’ in traditional Igbo culture. The term ‘Sangoma’ also translates to ‘person of the drum’. This beat tape is dedicated to everyone who loves both Hip-Hop and African music. Being a first-generation Igbo-American, I’ve been blessed with the privilege of enjoying the music of both worlds. This tape combines these two worlds. Enjoy it, comment on it, download it, share it!”
