Asya Satti selects ten of her favourite afro-fusion, Sufi and reggae tracks, from Christopher Ellis to Saied Khalifa. Dive in!

"اهل العمار" by Esaam Sati and Ali Naseraldeen

One of the biggest breakthrough tracks in Sudan and the singing in the chorus is sensational.

"Rubadub" by Christopher Ellis

My go-to track for the last 12 months, the bass and this melody combined is like honey.

"Suzanna" by Sauti Sol

When I hear this I’m always transported, and feel like I’m dancing at an outdoor party in Kenya.

"12 Weeks" by Hoosh

Expect big things from this Sudanese artist based in Miami.

"Temma" by Oum

Love the melody of this song, they're a Moroccan musician who fuses genres inexplicably.

"Jeje de Whine" by Ckay

Before his song went viral on TikTok, this was the track I had on repeat throughout lockdown.

"Haylouh" by Gawaher

I love this tongue-in-cheek 90s song from a Sudanese artist that fuses Egyptian influences into her music.

"Labis Toubo" by Setona and Said Ahmed

This riddim makes me want to dance! Simply written about a girl wearing a her sari.

"Igd Allooli (The Pearl Necklace)" by Saied Khalifa

A classic song during Sudan's golden era of music. I love his expressive voice.

"Echoes" by The Soil

This South African acapella track is haunting, engulfing and transcendent.
