Sunday Selection from Hong Kong Beat mobile disco

Sunday is about those tunes that don’t usually get played or listened to often, as they’re not mainstream genres like R&B, rock, EDM and so on. In Hong Kong Beat mobile disco’s household, Sunday music has always been about these – classical, opera, Worldbeat, 40s swing…

The first Sunday Selection brings some tunes from Africa, from the jungles, the savannahs, the islands, and the deserts. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what they’re singing about or not, the voices are as musical as the tunes themselves.
