African Popular Music: Evolution and Diversity


Jay Lou - My music has its roots in Africa and it has the intention of telling stories of a new Africa, without any complexities, an Africa which is winning and not crying under corruption and misery. I dream of that Africa and I believe in it. In this new millennium people should not be shocked to hear the strings of chords, a harp or harpsichord playing African melodies. Many people do not realize that our continent has evolved...

There are people who think that Khadja Nin's music is "not African" - whatever that means. Khadja's comment on that:

"I think it is really funny that people in Europe and America seem to believe we are still sitting modestly in the bush, beating the drums. After all we grew up with the same music you are listening to everyday on your radios."
