VF Live: Hadj Sameer #3



From Nigerian and Lebanese funk to Cape Verde Funaná and Algerian rai.

With quarantines and lockdowns due to the Coronavirus pandemic ongoing around the world, artists are finding new ways to connect with people worldwide.

In VF Live, our favourite collectors take you inside their homes and record shops for intimate selects and mixes.

Watch the set above, find out more about his inspirations and check out the tracklist below.

For Hadj Sameer’s final instalment in his three-part series, he selects records from Africa, the Middle East and South East Asia.

“I tried to make people cross certain continents while listening to sounds more or less known – coming from Nigeria, Lebanon, Cape Verde, Algeria and Pakistan.

This third session was an opportunity for me to end this trip in style. Stay tuned – I will come back soon for a nice vinyl mix for VF :)”
