If you enjoyed Acoustic Africa, you'll love this collection of acoustic songs from across the continent that offers even more flavors of Africa. Whether you are sipping an espresso in a tent on the savanna or savoring a rooibos latte in a café in Seattle, these songs will put you in an African state of mind. This album includes an African coffee recipe.

Putumayo World Music is pleased to announce the release of its latest compilation, African Café. In Putumayo fashion, listeners are taken on a musical journey through different regions of Africa, guided by a selection of relaxing and uplifting acoustic songs that will inspire and raise their spirits.

The album starts out with sounds of Senegal in Yoro Ndiaye’s poignant “Namm Naa Leen,” in which a subtle mbalax influence flows under the heartfelt lyrics of remembering loved ones. The album then transitions to a slower tempo with a warm guitar introduction to Toto Bona Lokua’s “M’aa Kiana.” Cameroon’s Richard Bona, Congo’s Lokua Kanza, and France’s Gerard Toto have been dubbed Africa’s Crosby, Stills & Nash, and this track proves why. Listeners are quickly swept in to a gentle rhythm as the group delivers a moving ballad.

​A Kahawa coffee recipe is also included – a nod to Africa being the home of the origin of coffee and one of the world’s largest tea producers.
