Frank Bessem's Musiques d'Afrique is a non-commercial web site intended to spread information about African music and musicians of African origin. Hereto, it is offering a large number of featured artist pages with biographical information and a discography. The objectives of the site are to inform and educate about music from a continent very rich in musical heritage and talent, but less so in production and promotion capacity as well as in exposure to media.

Description: Frank Bessem's Musiques d'Afrique - African Music - Afrikaanse muziek
African Popular Music, Artists, Biographies, Discographies & CDs, currently about 285 artists and bands, with over 2150 albums featured, more than 1050 albums featured in detail. African music... music of a continent. The diversity in styles and the sheer infinite number of artists makes it impossible to be exhaustive. This is therefore only a selection of musicians of some African countries (mainly Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Senegal and Congo). The selection is mainly based on what I like... You'll find complete discographies and concise biographies of the featured artists and bands. The emphasis is on popular urban African music.
