Music, as the other fine arts, in impregnated with the political and cultural contexts that generated it. This is given by a bidirectional relationship, in which two elements absorb one thing from the other: the subject from the community and the community from the subject. Since music was born in Africa, it necessarily speaks about black culture. Thereafter, any musical subgender can show us a part of this continent, as well as the suffering that its people have been trough.

Keywords: Africa, music, origin, identity.
