    Black people make the best music?

    Soca, Dancehall, Zouk, Zouk love, Calypso, Afrobeats, Jazz, Lovers rock, Kuduro (from Angola), dub, Hip hop, Salsa and Millions of Beyonce, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, JLS and Chris brown fans

    Everywhere Africans go we produce a rich music culture from England to Brazil...even if some may be controversial like rap and Dancehall.

    Am I just biased?

    I agree... but the current state of hiphop and the current garbage it produces is a blemish on that legacy... its a shame thats the dominant culture right now too

    The generations before have set the standards and the youth today cannot uphold those standards but i wouldn't say that its all garbage.....much of it is though.
    I also agree that some very very impressive music is being made by african artists these days.

    Is there some kind of organisation for Afro music? Like a cultural society.

    It depends on one's cultural exposure and personal taste.

    lol All types of music is celebrated, doesn't mean it has a large international following

    Anyway, this is great music it sounds like Panamanian Congo music, which I'd put in the "local African influenced" category

    Congo people are the closest thing to Garífuna people that exist. Congos are also blacks with strong Amerind cultural and racial influence. I wouldn't put Congo music on Garifuna music's level though.

    Sadly the people who say that inhabit the same islands that Garifuna people were removed from only 217 years ago...

    More people know about Garifuna people and Garifuna music than St. Vincent and the Grenadines...

    YouTube view count for Garifuna people:

    https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...arifuna+people

    YouTube view count for Garifuna music:

    https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...Garifuna+music

    Now compare that to St. Vincent and the Grenadines:
