Colourful Environments contains over an hour of West African music, and its title speaks to the mix’s inclusion of everything from boogie funk jamming to psychedelic rock noodling. To deviate slightly from our usual mixtape tendencies, Colourful Environments is available only as a one mp3 download, without descriptions or song titles. Anonymity and mysterious origins, though, are not enough to stop the grooves.

Voodoo Funk is a blog dedicated to a diverse cross-section of West African music, with chronicles of Gossner’s stays in West Africa, Nigeria, and Ghana — and over 30 hours of additional music for you to download and stream.
