post videos or links of all your favourite head-nodding, neck-breaking, hip-dislocating shit here. they definitely don't have to be rap, but definitely have to haul a** and be able to work a dancefloor into a disgusting sweat!  :)

and they have to be african. or if you really must, from the diaspora.

i'll start with a favourite of mine. Os Lambas from Angola. they're on that grimy kuduro heat. here's a little info on their sound:

Quote

Accra has hiplife. Johannesburg has kwaito. Luanda has kuduro.

Kuduro literally translates as ’stiff bottom’ in Angolan-Portuguese. A percussion-driven hybrid of Zouk, ragga, techno and house, birthed in Luanda and Lisbon in the late 1980s, and with followers and crews all over the Lusophone world (it’s big in Brazil), the genre may still make up for Portuguese-speaking Africa having to stand back to other continental inventions like Afrobeat, mbaqanga, or Rai. And with the viral quality of the internet, a local industry in Luanda that measures pressing 12,000 CDs a success, could go global. Already hipsters in the US mainstream music press are picking up on the genre’s infectious sound.

Os Lambas, featured here doing its single “Comboio II” is one of the upcoming acts of a genre whose pioneers include Buraka Sin Sistema and Helder Rei do Kuduro.



this shit knocks!

It's probably difficult to find African vids on the web.


Get over yourself.

I'm a big Afro-Pop head, when I was a kid, I used to listen to Soukous, Makossa, Rai,
and other styles. African videos aren't really hard to find on Youtube. There's loads of
Congolese Soukous videos!

Papy Mbavo (DR Congo)- Kotazo



Lapiro Mbanga (Cameroon)-Lef am so (This singer has been jailed for singing about
the corruption in Cameroon, just like in the video)



Papa Wemba (DR Congo)- Analengo



Saidou Sow (Guinea) -?  (RIP)





I'll be back with more........
