Volume 6 of REPUBLICAFROBEAT will be called AFROBEAT IBÉRICO and aims to reflect the Afrobeat scene in Galicia, the Basque Country, Asturias, Catalonia, Madrid, Aragon, Extremadura, Andalusia and Portugal. The Iberian Peninsula is a melting pot of cultures, a land of comings and goings where the black presence and multiracial coexistence has been relevant for centuries. Its music has deeply permeated among its people. And Afrobeat, a musical genre created by Nigerians Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, has been a protagonist for decades. Originally conceived as a tool for social engagement, it is a vehicle for connection regardless of colour, race, religion, gender, identity or ideology.
