    More or less...it's the indigenous music of a couple of the Francophone islands, derived from the influence of their African origins fused with European elements.

    I find zouk sounds a lot like West African music, especially Senegalese music...lots of guitars.

    yup, have you ever listened to soukous? That's from the Congos, bands such as Loketo play soukous. Really nice. During the world creol music festival we get all those musical types.

    Francophone is a term given to all countries who has a french history. There are 52 countries. Sort of like the french version of Commonwealth States.

    here's a list of the countries:

    Talking

    Simply put.If the creole words were replaced by English words,then what would it be?What would it sound like?The beat,the tone,the whole musical content would sound like soca.Soundz so 2 me.Wouldn't it?

    i think zouk i more the style of the music rather than the language in which the singer expresses him/herself.
    just take kompas music , now singers sing on the kompas beat but in english. the musical genre still remains the same.

    so all that to say that if zouk was sang in english, it would still be considered zouk. well i would still consider it zouk.
