Africa
African music is a tradition mainly played at gatherings at special occasions. The traditional music of Africa, given the vastness of the continent, is historically ancient, rich and diverse, with different regions and nations of Africa having many distinct musical traditions. Music in Africa is very important when it comes to religion. Songs and music are used in rituals and religious ceremonies, to pass down stories from generation to generation, as well as to sing and dance to. Traditional music in most of the continent is passed down orally (or aurally) and is not written. In Sub-Saharan African music traditions, it frequently relies on percussion instruments of every variety, including xylophones, djembes, drums, and tone-producing instruments such as the mbira or "thumb piano."[1][2] The music and dance of the African diaspora, formed to varying degrees on African musical traditions, include American music and many Caribbean genres, such as soca, calypso (see kaiso) and zouk. Latin American music genres such as samba, conga, son, rumba, salsa, bomba and cumbia were founded on the music of enslaved Africans, and have in turn influenced African popular music.[1] Like the music of Asia, India and the Middle East, it is a highly rhythmic music. African music consists of complex rhythmic patterns, often involving one rhythm played against another to create a polyrhythm. The most common polyrhythm plays three beats on top of two, like a triplet played against straight notes. Beyond the rhythmic nature of the music, African music differs from Western music in that the various parts of the music do not necessarily combine in a harmonious fashion. African musicians aim to express life, in all its aspects, through the medium of sound. Each instrument or part may represent a particular aspect of life, or a different character; the through-line of each instrument/part matters more than how the different instruments and parts fit together.

Wiki of ‘The Dark Jungle’ You are on holiday in Africa, you stay deep in the jungle. That night you go to bed and fall asleep. You are dreaming, suddenly you wake up. You hear men shouting in Afrikaans. You walk out of your cabin; it is pitch dark. The jungle is very dark there is no light anywhere, except the moon. All at once you are grabbed and dragged away by men. Your heart is beating! Suddenly light flashes through the jungle. You fall and wake up later. It is still pitch dark. The men come back and drag you through the jungle. Your heart starts pumping even faster! The trees are moving. The animals run away. The water flows faster. The stones crumble and fall down the slope. It is a mystery. --------------------------------------------------------------------- 📧 Contact us: Management.jvrrams@gmail.com --------------------------------------------------------------------- ✔️ Soundcloud; https://soundcloud.com/user-447878995... -------------------------------------------------------------------- ¿Would you survive the dark jungle? ....
