African music consists of complex rhythmic patterns, often involving one rhythm played against another to create a polyrhythm. The most common polyrhythm plays three beats on top of two, like a triplet played against straight notes. Beyond the rhythmic nature of the music, African music differs from Western music in that the various parts of the music do not necessarily combine in a harmonious fashion. African musicians aim to express life, in all its aspects, through the medium of sound. On his album Graceland, the American folk musician Paul Simon employs African bands, rhythms and melodies as a musical backdrop for his own lyrics; especially Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Mamman Sani, Taaritt Another album of keyboard music, and another album on Sahelsounds, Nigerien musician Mamman Sani was an early pioneer of synth music in Niger-well known in that country, but little known elsewhere. Still, his instrumental keyboard music from the 1980s, recorded in France and Niger, is restored to its full glory here (and given a cool spaceship cover to boot). Ibrahim Maalouf, Kalthoum Though Lebanese trumpet player Ibrahim Maalouf isn’t African, on his new album, Kalthoum, he’s remixing and rebuilding and riffing on the music of one of the greatest North African divas, Oum Kalthoum. A singer from Egypt, Kalthoum towers over the world of Arab music like a colossus.
Here are the 15 South African albums that came out this year which we recommend. On Exiled, Thandi Ntuli sang more than she did on her 2014 debut album The Offering. Exiled opens with a spoken word piece performed by Ntuli herself in which she speaks of past pains and healing, and the complications that come with that process. Moonga K makes singing and making music look easy. In his 10-track debut album, Wild Solace, the artist explores subjects such as the universal complication of being alive, growing up, losing loved ones, among other heavy subject matter. Moonga's voice is dynamic and co-exists with the varying production he chose on here.
Pan African Music brings you the finest in African music of yesterday and tomorrow! . Ebo Taylor’s lost album to be released 40 years later. The tapes from Palaver, recorded in the 80s in Nigeria by the Ghanaian highlife legend, were forgotten in a backroom of Tabansi Records' studios FEATURES. Santi’s Mandy & The Jungle embodies the new standard of alté scene. As an artistic effort, the extent of its reach is applaudable
