This collection of African music attempts, at least in theory, to showcase the new cutting-edge music of Africa alongside its older counterparts. In some ways, it does this admirably, showing off Angola's Bonga on a fado-based form of song, as well as the common people of Burundi in their various musical endeavors

The music of Africa is as vast and varied as the continent's many regions, nations, and ethnic groups. The African continent comprises approximately 20 percent of the world's land mass and has a population of roughly 934 million. African music is as diverse as its cultures and peoples and has flowered in many indigenous forms as well as been shaped by foreign influences. Besides using the voice, which has been developed to use various techniques such as complex melisma and yodel, a wide variety of musical instruments are used in African music. A West African man plays the kora, an African chordophone, of the resonator bow type. These include a wide array of drums. The music of the independence, like highlife and rumba Congolese, have further inspired and given rise to new local musical genres that are emerging in the twenty-first century.
