The Changing Face and Music of Africa
African Music and Sound Effects That Resonate With the Times

Scary Times in Africa -- The Dark Continent offers a rich and evolving history. From the 1918 silent films and 1930s-1940s movies about Tarzan living among the apes, to today’s uncontrolled turmoil with genocide, looting, piracy and pervasive crime in far too many countries. As a result, there are over 4 million people displaced and Africa is imploding.

The High Cost of Independence -- With UN Peacekeepers in the Congo, Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire, as South Sudan just became the newest nation, Africa’s 54th state -- films, documentaries and world news shows bring us tales of triumph and disaster. Independence is a fairly new concept in Africa: By 1950, only four of 53 countries were independent – and today, the desire for democracy and a political voice in the future of many nations remains strong. The world is rooting for safety and a better life for all African nations.

Sorrow, Aftermath of Wars and Dislocation of People
From the early slave trade to the 1987 Sierra Leone documentary, Cry Freedom, civil war, murder, ethnic cleansing, starvation, and displacement have been a constant in Africa. The stunning 2004 Academy Award-nominated “Hotel Rwanda” depicted genocide that left 1 million people brutally murdered. Other stories cover war orphans, child soldiers, and the devastation of HIV/AIDS.

African Hip Hop and Rap
Popular in Africa since the early 1980s due to widespread American influence, Hip Hop and Rap have escalated all over Africa and each region has developed a unique style of Hip Hop. Rap elements are found in Kwaito, a new genre based on House music which developed in South Africa in the 1990s, and Mbalax, a type of West African Pop music.
