They say those who wish to sing always find a song. And there are ways to sing along without knowing what song. CANOE Quarterly’s journey at the end of 2years is celebrated in music. Music is everything. We let rites, concerts and celebration enliven our soul. We pushed the canoe far out for Fela and Makeba; Greatest. Of. All. Time. What is succeeded from them today; from Salif Keita to Nneka. Our contemporary ‘Primitive’ instruments and gadgets. Their application - from our homes to cars
If you have forgotten that magical power of music. Find it in African song and dance; buy, download or make some. From rebel music to traditional folk, songs you loved but did not understand.
We apologise for the hundreds of unrepresented artists. One more celebrity, artiste, genre, producer and instrument. Even the Internet cannot cover the entirety of African song. Stories are still coming in…
CANOE is now in 10 African countries… and soon another, and another...
And the message remains the same
