The last few years have seen a number of underground music scenes cropping up from Africa, itís diaspora and itís musical traditions (not to mention the great Pop thatís come out of the former British West Africa). For the most part the music hasnít been groundbreaking enough to gain traction as individual threads, so I thought this thread could encompass the various strands of arty/underground stuff thatís coming out:


Ethiopiyawi

Kwaito

Gqom

South African Deep House

Kuduro/Batida/Kizomba

Afrobeats refers to Azonto and Naija which are more poppy, so wouldn't fit into this thread.

I know there are threads for Kwaito and Gqom, but thought it would be better to a have a streamlined thread considering individually these genres garner little enthusiasm on the forum.

No problem, it is a bit of a clumsy title. Can someone let me know how I go about changing the title?

I think you just go "sufi to thread please" and everything magically becomes alright.
