History of African Music


Music from around the globe, such as Jazz, Blues, Samba, Salsa, Rhumba, Gospel, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Calypso, and R&B music all have a common ancestor — African music. African musical influence spans beyond borders and traditional African music. It's been shaping music around the world for centuries. It began with the dispersion of millions of Africans around the world during the slave trade. Learn more about the African connection with Modern Day music with Oiada International.
