    I like it. There's just an irresistible positive spirit to some of this music.

    No idea what she's singing but doesn't matter at all.

    Well, it's from South Africa but it's not African imo, it's AngloSaxon.

    That's really funny! Never been told before that I'm not an African....by a non-African! (Unless you're unaware that we are not all black? Or perhaps this thread is for Black Africans only for some reason?)

    I could not agree more! You have made my day by introducing me to Oumou Sangaré .

    I'm white but we're all African !

    But of course I didn't say you're not African but the music isn't (culturally). It's music that belongs to the western Anglosaxon tradition. Well, you know what I mean. I know the music you posted maybe African in a geopolitical sense but not in a cultural sense. Or you would need to explain that to me because I hear nothing in it that makes me think of South Africa in any way (culturally or geopolitically). I can see Nico's Gouwe Ouwe being African in some sense but this no.

    Gnawa music of Morocco. Strong groove, complex and ever-changing rhythm patterns.

    one of my friends made me like soukous music. he became interested because of the guitar solos.
    Zaiko Langa Langa is one of the favorites.




    Toki Lala's Pardon Chéri also has a great guitar solo, we often played it together.

    From these videos I like Toki Lala's music most.

    Ndombolo is a modern fast version of soukous that's very popular in parts of Africa.
