True Music celebrates artists that do it their way. Whether they are just starting out or already global stars. They aren't in it for the glitz and glamour, but simply to make the music which they truly believe in.
Music that’s frenetic and playful. The sound of innovation at its best. Artists are continually experimenting with different touch points of West Africa’s musical heritage to create new, unique flavours that thrive from its African roots. That is True Music!
We’re starting a new movement to take a stand for True Music. Music born from passion, not compromise. This is our Music... This is True Music Africa!
