This is the most incredible African House mixtape series I have ever listen to and the best thing is: This series has just started. ‘Talking Drums‘ is a product of the Nairobi/Chicago-based Sentient Sounds Sessions, a monthly podcast that celebrates the diverse culture of House Music as well as alternative genres. The podcasts are hosted by five talented DJs: ST. Evo “The Myth” (Kenya), Taigo Onez (Chicago), Mr. Jake (Kenya), Marcus Ezra (Kenya) and MackBoogaloo (Chicago/Los Angeles).
The House series ‘Talking Drums‘ is crafted by Kenyan DJ Saint Evo “The Myth” and “brings you a variety of rhythms, chants, and the new-age acts of House music from Africa and its evolution within the global music scene. A show derived from the Depths of Africa and deeply rooted in the genres of Afro, Tribal & Equatorial House.”
