Released in August 2019, CKay the First is the second EP from Nigerian Afrobeat singer, songwriter, and producer CKay. Self-produced and issued by the Chocolate City label, the EP gained popularity and found international success over the next two years thanks largely to a remixed version of the track "Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)." The song's 2020 remix featuring fellow Nigerian singer Joeboy and Ghanian highlife singer Kuami Eugene went viral in 2021, elevating CKay to global status and helping his EP achieve widespread chart success around the world, including a number four placement on Billboard's World Albums chart and even making the Billboard 200 in the U.S. The original solo version included here is a laid-back mixture of Afrobeat pop with R&B elements. A handful of guests appear on CKay the First including Blaqbonez ("Like to Party"), DJ Lambo ("Way"), and Boj ("Oliver Kahn").

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.
