African Music: Its Nature and Singularities
Ambroise Kua-Nzambi TOKO (CG)

African musical art has always featured a huge diversity of styles. Very much related to traditions, community and religious practices, authentic African music is in general of circumstantial, functional and ritual essence. The approach to the work in its design, its rendering and its reception is sensual, substantialist, essentialist, contextual, sacred, upward, dynamic, functional or purely aesthetic. This is the focal point between the two approaches unique to 'Afro' including others: "the African spirit of music" and "the spirit of African music".
