Playing tracks by

Segun Bucknor, The Nkengas, Monomono, Jabula, T.P. Orchestre PolyRythmo and more.

During the 70s, the youth of many African countries including Nigeria and Ghana, discovered the Soul and Funk especially in those moments that African-American youth was billing. Black music was evolving in the U.S. through a rebellious youth active and ideologically fueled by revolutionary doctrines of Malcolm X or the Black Panthers, claiming a return to the source, an approach to mother Africa.

Thus, this new generation of African musicians took these sounds and enriched with their own musical-cultural background, giving them all this wealth in poly-rhythmic musical tradition. MasQ's Arkcast brings us a tradition that goes from the evolution of a sound, that although imported from outside, has its roots in the depths of the African continent.
