does it matter about the marketing? think genre is anti music/ art in general. just enjoy & stop trying to put art into a box, or it might stay there & you’ll have less :v: :sunglasses: :+1:

gets in the way, lol.


Hugh Masakela is typically African tinged jazz, but that track has a real blues feel to it, not really Jazz. I’d say African Blues.
