A musical tour of Africa: part two

Sean Connolly shares some of his favourite tracks from across the continent.

The best beaches in Sierra Leone

Each beach has a character and style of its own, from the colour of its sand to the quality of its waves.
Sean Connolly first got a taste of independent travel in 2004 and has been finding ways to live, study, work, or simply backpack internationally ever since. He first travelled to Africa as a student in 2008 and has been returning to the continent regularly to research, teach English or simply soak up the ambiance in Africa’s countless little-visited corners ever since. He’s been poring over maps since before he could read them and working with Bradt Guides since 2011, for whom he has updated or contributed to guides to Somaliland, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, Uruguay, Sierra Leone, Gabon and two editions of Rwanda, along with authoring the new 1st and 2nd editions of the Bradt Guide to Senegal. Raised in Chicago and educated in New York, Sean stays on the move whenever possible, though lately you’ll most often find him in Berlin. Sean is also on Instagram. View his profile here.
