Celebrating African Music

What crosses your mind when you hear people mention “African music?”

There are so many dumb misconceptions when it comes to Africa and the people who live in the continent. But let’s get one thing straight, like any other continent- Music in Africa is so damn cool and catchy.

It can be intriguing for an outsider too!

I find the fact that, different cultures are incorporated by artist in their music. And East, West, North and Southern Africa have their own style of performing and expressing themselves through music.

Today, I’d like to share a few catchy African songs. Tell me what you think!

 

  1. MAFIKIZOLO from Southern Africa

 

2. CASSPER from Southern Africa

 

3. D’BANJ from West Africa

 

4. TEKNO from West Africa

 

5. DARASSA from East Africa

6. DIAMOND/ AY from East Africa

 

7. AMR DIAB from North Africa

 

PS: Music videos courtesy of YouTube

Do not worry if you don’t understand the lyrics, I don’t either (Most of them )! Just enjoy the upbeat feel of the music and awesome videos.

 

Over To You …

Is this your first time listening to African music? If yes, what was your reaction?

Thank you for reading.

With Love,

Signature
