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.
