The United Sounds of Africa tour, a collective of the top hip hop artists from the African continent, will be touring the United States for the first time this August.

Featuring artists most of us have never heard of – Tuface Idibia, Nigeria’s M.I., Ice Prince, Brymo, Timi Dakolo, J Martins and Iyanya – the tour is only seven dates long. It should be rather cool to see how hip hop has influenced cultures across the globe and how these artists translate the music in their own terms.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now.
