Articles on Zouk and Hot Clips......... Does Akon (RnB Artist) really sing Zouk?

Hi All,

I found a couple of great articles on Zouk and Kizomba that I wanted to share with you.

This one goes into some detail about the view on zouk music, and also includes a map of where the music is mostly known and a few comments on the topic also.

In English.

You can also have a look at Zouk Machines video clip for the song Maldon, a classic. One of the songs that used to play heaps in Porto Seguro when I was there many years ago.

The author also goes on to mention hearing zouk influences in Akons music whilst still being influenced by both RnB and Hip Hop.

A few comments on this blog are quite interesting. and theres quite alot of interesting articles on various genres of music.

Theres is also another I discovered written in Portuguese about minority genres.
