Popular Music of Africa.
Traditional Africa music is vast and varied, Most contemporary genres of African popular music
build on cross-pollination with western popular music. Many genres of popular music like blues,
jazz, salsa, zouk,and rumba derive to varying degrees on musical traditions from Africa,
taken to the Americas by enslaved Africans. These rhythms and sounds have subsequently been
adapted by newer genres like rock, and rhythm and blues. African popular music has adopted elements,
particularly the musical instruments and recording studio techniques of western music.
One of the most important 20th century singers of South African popular music was Miriam Makeba,
who played a key-role, in the 60s, in drawing global audience's attention to African music and its meaning.
The Afro-Euro hybrid style, the Cuban son, has had an influence on certain popular music in Africa.
Some of the first guitar bands on the continent played covers of Cuban songs.
The early guitar-based bands from the Congo called their music rumba, although it was song rather than rumba-based,
The Congolese style eventually evolved into what became known as soukous.
