    Afro Zouk Time

    From Togo



    Sounds more Ivorian from the north.



    Same song as above.

    "Every onlooker is either a coward or a traitor." — Frantz Fanon

    “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.” Frederick Douglass

    Thumbs up

    Dis L'heure 2 Afro Zouk is a great compilation. If anyone is interested they should seek that out.

    Some Afro Zouk



    Ti sourit, ti sourit se nan pèlen ou rete
    Rat ki rat se nan pèlen ou rete
    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve
    Bwa m kale tou wouj
    Kon piman , kon piman, Langyèt madivinèz
    Ou pa bezwen chandèl pou ou klere l

    A misleading the title of your post. Didnt Zouk start with people of African descent?

    Nevertheless, the music is nice.

    Yes, but it isn't African music per se, same as how Funk and Jazz aren't African either.

    How is it misleading? The music posted is what we call Afro Zouk. A lot of the songs are performed in French mixed in with their regional languages.

    It is misleading to me because people of African descent created Zouk. People of African descent are called Afro-Americans arent they sometimes? If the thread was titled "Zouk from Africa" then I would understand.

    Nevetheless, the music is nice.

    I didn't coin the term, It's the label for the sub-genre. There's also African salsa and Afro reggae.

    Pushing what exactly? because straight Zouk is sung in a mix of Wolof and French. It's called Afro Zouk there is always going to be a French Caribbean influence otherwise it would be called something else. Afro Zouk translates the same way "Kizomba" does man.
