New York (TADIAS) — The U.S.-based African diaspora music production and entertainment media brand, Africology, will launch an online video streaming program (Africology TV) next month profiling up-and-coming artists from Africa and the Diaspora, including a weekly list of top ten music videos.

The launch party for Africology TV will takes place on New Year’s day 2016 at Studio XXI in New York City.

In the following audio interview with Tadias, Africology co-founder Sirak Getachew (DJ Sirak) discusses their new television venture as well as his thoughts on Ethiopian rap star Teddy Yo. “What he has done is that he took traditional Ethiopian folk music in a sense and blended it with hip-hop” says DJ Sirak, acknowledging that he is one of the few local artists who has successfully gained widespread popularity with this fusion.
