- Hello moderator
I noticed, people don't post anything here. It seems like this list
lacks members. Perhaps you should promote this group so people can
join and discuss African music.
Just my .02 cents worth.

I am a 20 year old female, American of Haitian descent. I love
all types of music that involves drums and chantings and etc. A
couple years ago, in my jazz class, I was introduced to the acappella
sounds of Zap Mama. I immediately went out and purchased their CD,
Amazone. It is really good. I love it. My second Zap Mama CD, is
Seven. I think Amazone is the better of the two. I hear that
CDs previous to the ones listed above are straight acappella, and I'm
dying to hear them. I just wanted to share my love of Zap Mama with
you all. If there are other African musicians with similar stylings
or better, please let me know. I am also into hip hop, regaee and
R&B, if there are african musicians which have those stylings, please
let me know as well.
Hope to hear from you all soon.
The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree!!!!

I was very impressed on the variuos projects listed.
I need some advise on promoting awareness on the supressed plight of Kenyan
Freedom fighters who are still not accepted as National heroes To dedicate a
documentary on the struggle with archived and drammatic presentation.
So the next generation will never forget.
