About the show

Playing tracks by

The Afro-Caribbean connection has produced so much amazing music about romantic love. Particularly, Angola and Cape Verde has developed specific strands of musical expression which focus on a special feeling: that of loss and longing, of desire and nostalgia, of love mixed with sadness.

Since Zouk arrived (back) in Africa from the Guadeloupe and Martinique islands, where rhythms and melodies of the African expats mixed with Rumba, Calypso, Gwo Ka, Compas, Reggae, and Salsa (and where they must have looked across the ocean with infinite longing for home), it has since been influenced by another deeply emotional music: Portugese Fado. Long story short, during the last decades Zouk, Kizomba, and related styles have become ubiquitous in many parts of Africa.

With huge popularity of a style of course sometimes quantity replaces quality, and one often has to dig deeper to find amazing recordings.
