Rhythms of Zamunda, a compilation of songs by African artistes inspired by American comedy film ‘Coming 2 America’ has been released.
The 16-track compilation was curated by Sipho Dlamini, the Chief Executive Officer of Universal Music South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
“It was important for Def Jam Africa to be involved because the first film was so legendary to Africans in the diaspora,” says Dlamini. “The film franchise is tongue-in-cheek but conveys a rich quality of life in Africa. That is reflected in the music on Rhythms of Zamunda. We wanted to represent some of the sounds that are relevant, impactful and current on the continent.”
The pan-African project traces a “musical roadmap through Western, Eastern, and South African soundscapes and introduces this synergy to listeners worldwide,” per a statement.
