Welcome to the new version of Washerman’s Dog. I’ve given a bit of an explanation of how this version will be different from the original Dog and hope the splitting of South Asian music from the Rest of the World will work for everyone.
To get started I’ve put together another mixtape of African melodies, beats and rhythms that have been on frequent ‘Play’ mode on various devices in my world.
I know these have been appreciated by many of readers in the past so I hope this one lives up to that (perceived) standard.
