Opiate of the People

With the start of the World Cup today, I was inspired to make a mix at the musical melting point where South Africa meets Afrophilic Europe and America. This is not the place for discussion of the ethics and economics of cross-continental filching – good food for thought in that direction is here. But does it seem like the distinctions are blurring? Viva miscegenation!
