Afrikan music is older than time. It is born from the hearts and souls of our people,and much can be said without the use of words. However,the words that are spoken in the languages of our ancestors,and only we can understand the language if we open our mind to learn the languages of our ancient people. Today's "rap" music does not speak to us the way Afrikan music does. Afrikan music has a rich powerful history. It is immortal,and today's music can not compete with the music of the Motherland.
