Jackson Wahengo released his album “Akutu Hewa” in November 2012. The album placed Namibia on the world music map, a country rarely represented in the global music scene. The 14-track album tells stories about contemporary and traditional Namibian society and politics through horde of influences performed in compositions full of layers and detail that in a groovy way come together as one. A host of artists are featured on the album including the Senegalese songbird Farmara Mballo.  The result is an infectious and groovy mix of contemporary Afropop and Folk that is yet genuinely universal.

Listen to Akutu Hewa here on Spotify or selected songs on Soundcloud. Akutu Hewa can also be bought on iTunes.
