Its Powerful

A pastor in church told us  "while the rest of the world dances to words, in Africa we dance to beats" lol and we danced to African gospel music the whole service it was amazing!! There is something about African music that speaks to you, its beautiful and full of messages of freedom, peace, unity and power. We have very many languages in Africa but you don't even need to understand the words to know its an amazing song, the beats and energy of the musicians just say it all. We have a history of great musicians like Fela Kuti, Kanda Bongo, Youssou N’Dour, Miriam Makeba, Koffi Olomide, Brenda Fassie, 2face, Awilo Longomba, Yvone Chaka Chaka and the list goes on and on. These people have made it on world wide chats yet most people don't even understand what they are talking about. Listening to this type of music makes me proud to be African.  I found a great link which list down some of Africa's greatest musicians, check it out c why its amazing!!
