The African Diaspora has created all forms of popular music from Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Rock 'N Roll, Pop, Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggae, Salsa, Tango, Merengue, Bachata and the list goes on. Even stringed instruments, horns and drums go all the way back to Nile Valley civilization (the beginning of humanity) and Ancient Kemet (Egypt). Civilization did not start in Greece. They learned from Africans. Herodotus one of Greece's ancient scholars says so in his book The History of Herodotus: Book II written in 440 B.C.E.
