Where injustice prevails, out-of-season notes will bloom.
How it sounds
Like Jazz, with a more African tempo, where the bassist is the first berry.
Music that is considered ideal for mass protests.
Why listen to it
For the strongly socio-political verse and why it is the main influence of many kinds.
But also because we are supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, long before it took this title and of all social movements in general for freedom and equality.
It is not metal !!!!!!!!!!!
Where we meet it
When did it start
Who are the pioneers
The term was coined in the 1960s by Nigerian multi instrumentalist Fela Kuti.
He is considered to be responsible for pioneering and disseminating the style both inside and outside Nigeria.
You have to listen
Days of glory
Especially in the ’60s and ’70s.
To this day, however, it is a point of reference and has a strong influence on Jazz in general, but even on Rock.
We can not find anything that needs a red card.
What is it confused with
With Jazz, R&B, Highlife, Jùjú, Ndombolo, Hip Hop, House, and Soca.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Imagine Jazz music with strange percussion, which is not for a beach bar, although it may sound like that.
