African

It's all but impossible to write coherently about the music of a continent covering over 50 independent nations, between 800 and 1600 languages (depending on your definition), and at least five major cultural groupings. Also, different circumstances have led to noticeably different levels of "Africanness" in contemporary pop styles. At the most "African" level, there's what happens when a whole culture falls in love with an overseas influence, as the Congolese did with Cuban music. Sophisticated individual bands sometimes develop styles with an abnormally high proportion of overseas influence (Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango). When expatriate musicians form bands to play the music of their homeland, as did Osibisa in London, they come under different influences and produce a different mix. Different yet again are groups combining expatriate African musicians with Europeans, like the Germano-Ghanaian "Burger-Highlife" bands in Germany. Lastly, famous musicians with a local or expatriate African audience (Youssou N'Dour, King Sunny Ade, many others) have tried to "cross over" internationally, with mixed results.
