Product Description:
This amazing DVD explores the wonders of music in African culture. The Caribbean and Americas owe a lot to the influence Africa has had on music and in turn Africa has been influenced with new types of music. The program shows the history of genres as hi-life, the sweet and painful melodies of a palm wine guitar, the mournful harmonies of nnwonkoro to the fierce and complex rhythms of kplango. Throughout the program you'll see performances by Adinkra, the African Brothers, Frankie Lane and Gifty Collins, Koo Nimo, Nana Ampadu, Segun Adewale and His Superstars International and the Sumsum Band.
