King Sunny Ade - Synchro System [Bio]
King Sunny Ade and His African Beats is one of my favorite bands of all
time. I really love that Juju music sound! It just makes you
want to get up and dance. I've got to see him live some day.
There is also complete
live eight part Holland concert video on YouTube to give you an idea of
what his more recent concerts are like. I first heard King Sunny during the
great Napster Cambrian Explosion, and now thanks to YouTube we're
having another little Tsunami of music videos.

Franco Luambo Makiadi -Tpok Jazz - Massu [Bio]
Another great artist to come out of Africa was the Congolese musician and
singer Franco Luambo and his TPOK Jazz band. They played a very fast
beat Rumba that later inspired the
Soukous (modern African
Rumba) movement. This song Massu sung by the lovely Jolie Detta is one
my favorites by the group.
