When most people think of Africa, they think about the rhythms and percussion that dominate the continent's culture. They think of music that’s made for dancing. Irresistible music! Apart from the endless variety of dance music played in Africa itself, so many genres from the Americas that we know and love – funk, reggae, soul, ska, zouk, cumbia, merengue, son, samba etc etc – all share an African origin.

The electric bass guitar, played the Congolese way, combines the ancient bottom end of ceremonial percussive ensembles with the forceful vibrancy of today's large guitar-led Soukous orchestras.
