    why would they not they have 2 large ethnic groups who been there since the
    1500’s

  • soukous70  says:

    Dont be silly,,man,these fine folks arent rich,and theyre DJ’s,theyre not
    recording albums that illegally steal african music. Dont accuse them of
    failing to feed the origional artists,theyre DJ’s,they owe no monetary
    obligation. They pay respect by simply playing the music

    Hey, pero ve ve, qué petardo africano es el que está en vacile?? Nojoda,
    nos pillamos en los carnavales, la mae el que no vaya.

  • colombianske  says:

    We have som other places where the african influence is even stronger, but
    they don’t listen to this kind of music. So it’s actually weird but of
    course the african influence does play an important rolle.

  • mfenaadisukibaba  says:

    I am so shocked to see people in columbia dancing to this sound.I bet the
    Nigerian artist-Bright Chimezie,whose music is being played by these Djs
    will never believe that his album got to Columbia.And to think that average
    Nigerian youths don’t like being associated with these sort of sounds is
    sad.

  • Lotanna  says:

    ARE YOU DUMB? This music has NO origins in Cuba, Colombia or any other
    countries. Don’t you know African Culture pre-dates The present cultures in
    South America? This music is Nigerian & from my tribe, it is DISTINCT from
    Soukous and not from Congo. YOU can’t even tell the difference can you?
    This is WHY I take it upon myself to remind where it comes from. These
    rhythms come from within the depths of the area of my village. MARVIS I
    would like to assume that you are much smarter.

  • Lotanna  says:

    If they really are paying respect, then it shouldn’t be a big deal just
    because we say what tribes it comes from. Plus there are plenty black
    inventions people enjoy today and pay no respect to us. So NO just
    listening to our music doens’t mean we are respected. ARE YOU AWARE OF THE
    SITUATION OF OUR COMMUNITIES GLOBALLY? It doesn’t seem like it.

  • Mbwa Koko  says:

    They have different names for different kinds of Linaga, I can hardly tell
    them apart. This is my most recent song that I like:

  • colombianske  says:

    So don’t worry, the music is original, and the artis “got his money” (if
    that’s what you are worried about). The effects are added live, just to
    “innovate”, that’s actually what this guy with the white shirt does.

  • yayopatin  says:

    JAJAJAJAAJA QUE RISA ME DA ESE SKORPION COMO SIEMPRE EL RATA DE BOCON Y QUE
    EXCLUSIVO JAJAJA ESTAN LOCO….MAS BIEN SAQUEN LA COPIA EN CD QUE
    TIENEN……Ese disco sonaba en la epoca del solista y el timbalero…sigan
    soñando

  • Mbwa Koko  says:

    Aha, hehe, so they don’t actually dance to it much do they? I saw them
    attempting but they were dancing it more like dancehall reggae than
    lingala. It’s interesting, never knew!

  • Lotanna  says:

    And soukous70 how many of these sorts of distortions of our history do you
    need to read before you stop being so passive about it? Thats called
    selling-out. How much do you really value your own culture? And these are
    not NON-AFRICANS, these are AFRO-LATINOS. There is nothing European or
    hostile about simply TELLING THE TRUTH. ALL I said in the beginning was
    simply to tell where it comes from. That is not sin.

  • carabiche  says:

    I was surprise.. they do know much about african musics than suspected !!

  • Lotanna  says:

    We gonna have to get use to this. Most of us aren’t use to seeing the
    hispanics (non-african groups)in latin countries jumpin up and down to our
    music. It looks interesting to watch. Glad yall are enjoying our culture!

  • Lotanna  says:

    Soukous70 when Ive made mistakes in understanding cultures in Latin
    America, the Afro-Latinos were very quick to correct me, the same was true
    of Asians, Europeans, etc. I humbly listened and learned. Its not viewed as
    wrong when everyone else does it, So why would it be bad for Africans to do
    the same? I grew up respecting my roots so its first nature to talk about
    our culture no matter if its in Africa or the diaspora. Im supporting not
    dividing. Marvis seems like he/she is dividing.
