Re: Query: Intra-African music transnationalism - 1960s to present day.

An interesting sub-set might be musicians who were exiled from South Africa - for instance, Miriam Makeba, who was exiled for decades and lived in in Guinea for many years where I believe she took Guinean citizenship. Also Dorothy Masuka, born in Zimbabwe, but recorded in South Africa, which forced her to leave after she recorded a song about Patrice Lumumba - she lived and worked as a flight attendant in Zambia for many years, and was finally able to return to a musical career in South Africa.
