Introduction

Hi

Just dropping you all a line. I enjoy singing my own and other peoples songs esp Jazz and anything with a good groove. I'm into African music big time and love the Soukous, Kwaito and High-life styles.

Anyone else hear into African music, do let me know

Peace

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Steve, I enjoy a cross spectrum of music from Africa, such as Soukous, Afro Beat, Kwaito, Makossa etc.

Googling for artistes like Awilo Longomba, Brenda Fassie, Fela Kuti & King Masco should set you on an introduction to some of the many styles of music from the continent.

If you want to hear something live in London, try the 'Africa On Your Street' website, via the BBC for listings on who's in town. I also do a monthly event in North London featuring different styles of African music, if you would like details, do let me know.

Peace

I hope you do get to check out some of the artistes mentioned, you may well be pleasantly surprised at the diversity of styles and sounds of the different genres they play.

I like the little write-ups you do about your songs, I get the feeling you empathise with some of the situations people are in, e.g. the Taxi Driver. Having problems downloading the mp3's at present, so can really say more than that.

Take care.

Peace
