It began in Africa.

Africa is known for its infinite varieties of rhythms. Rhythm is the most important means of expression in African music. Through the centuries, African rhythms have conquered the world. This process ran analogous to the fight for the abolition of slavery of black people. The influence of African rhythms on contemporary western pop and world music is thorough and essential. African music is for a long time now performed by musicians that are not from Africa.
But, where does it come from; the magic of the African rhythm and African music? Where lie the sources of blues, jazz, soul, hip-hop, Afro-latin, Afro-beat, Afro-house and numerous other music styles that are unthinkable without the underlying reference to Africa? What kind of sounds did the slaves bring with them?
In this programme, we take a look at the sources of the African rhythms and will prove that rhythm is the language of time.
