International Grooves

By now you’ve probably heard of South African sensation Tyla – who  started her own marketing campaign posting songs and covers online during COVID and now enjoys not only insane internet success, (water challenge anyone?!) but a record deal with Epic, tour dates with Chris Brown and an entry on the Billboard charts (the first solo song by a South African on the charts since Hugh Masekela!) that solidify her status as not only one to watch, but one who has arrived!  Not bad for a relatively new (one year young) performer!! Using TikTok videos and dance challenges, Tyla’s ‘cheeky’ use of social media to engage audiences has certainly paid off!  Being gorgeous doesn’t hurt either!  

Taking the que and exploring global musical genres this issue’s uncovered Vietnamese metal bands, Saharian jazz and Hispanic blends from a Dominican American lens.  Diverse music for diverse audiences.  Enjoy!
