Afro-Drill is a new musical genre that combines the elements of Afrobeat, a West African style of music that blends traditional rhythms with modern influences, and Drill, a UK-based subgenre of hip hop that features dark, gritty, and aggressive beats. Afro-Drill has been gaining popularity in recent years, especially in Ghana, Nigeria, and other parts of Africa, where artists such as Sarkodie, Naira Marley, and Kwesi Arthur have been making waves with their hard-hitting tracks.
One of the latest artists to join the Afro-Drill movement is El Mukuka, the Zambian-born DJ, producer, and songwriter, who has just released a remix of his hit single “The Harvest”, featuring the talented Mumba Yachi. The original version of “The Harvest” was released in February 2023, and was the second single off El Mukuka’s debut album, “ZEBRA”, which is set to be released in the coming months. “The Harvest” is a celebration of the bountiful harvests experienced by an African village, and is a vibrant fusion of Congolese rumba music and Afro-House, with a distinctly Zambian feel. The song has received positive reviews from critics and fans alike.
