The BBC's special African musicial showcase, dubbed 'Africa Beats' has been going on since the 6th of April 2012. You can now view all the featurettes and performances from a single portal as uploaded by the broadcaster's journalists.

The channel features performances from singers such as Kidum, Atemi and Christine the Jazzist, as well as other pan-African greats like Morocco's Ahmed Soultan and Mali's Farke Toure. We look forward to the last recording of a Kenyan artist - Eric Wainana.

Each of the four-minute editions of Africa beats includes a musical performance as well as an interview with the selected artiste about their music, career and life.

The inaugural edition was on the 9th of April 2012, with Uganda's Sarah Tshile singing in Kiswahili and her native tongue. Each edition will introduce the BBC's global audience to an authentic African singer/songwriter.
