We are so excited to announce that Harmattan Rain has joined the list of official curator pages for Apple Music.
Consider this the official announcement of our new partnership with Apple Music as a curator for the streaming site.
Carefully put together by our editorial team, The Harmattan Rain curated page will highlight emerging and alternative music from across the African continent and diaspora.
Playlists include regional and genre-based ones as well as special playlists for specific occasions.
The Apple music curated page has been launched with 12 playlists in total: From the North, From the South, From the East, From the West, Francophone Connection, Africa to the World, Alte, Bar4Bar, Afroheat, Sister sounds, Afro lover and Vintage Groove.
An interesting aspect to note is that all artwork on the page is made by African artists. Genre-based playlists with a futuristic feel and trippy colours are by Nigerian artist Niyi Okeowo. The surreal collages for the regional playlists include photography from Ghanaian clothing brand Threaded Tribes.
“Each artwork is a representative of the energy of these playlists as well as the creative involved. The artwork exclaims that “This is the future of Africa’,” remarks Harmattan Rain lead, Benewaah Boateng.
