Traditional Music Of Africa
The continent, is historically ancient, rich and diverse, with different regions.Nations of Africa having many distinct musical traditions.Traditional music in most of the continent is passed down orally and is not written.
In Sub-Saharan African music traditions, it frequently relies on percussion instrumentsof every variety, including xylophones, djembes, drums, and tone-producing instruments such as
the mbira or "thumb piano."
The music and dance of the African diaspora, formed to varying degrees on African musical traditions,include American music and many Caribbean genres, such as soca, calypso and zouk.
Latin American music genres such as the rumba, conga, bomba, cumbia and samba were also founded onthe music of enslaved Africans, and have in turn influenced African popular music.
African traditional music is frequently functional in nature. Performances may be long and often involve the participation of the audience.There are, for example, little different kinds of work songs, songs accompanying childbirth, marriage, hunting and political activities, music to ward off evil spirits and to pay respects to good spirits, the dead and the ancestors. None of this is performed outside its intended social context and much of it is associated with a particular dance. Some of it, performed by professional musicians, is sacral music or ceremonial and courtly music performed at royal courts.
