Excerpt: Each of the more than sixty ethnic groups of Cote d'Ivoire have their own folk music traditions, most showing strong vocal polyphony (a common characteristic of African music), especially the Baoule. Talking drums are also common, especially among the Appollo, who are also known for their abissa purification dance, part of the popular Zoblazo dance music of Meiway. Polyrhythm, another African characteristic, is found throughout Cote d'Ivoire and is especially common in the southwest. Gbegbe, a Bete rhythm, has been a part of popular music since Cote d'Ivoire's independence, popularized by Soeurs Comoe and later, Freres Djatys and Sery Simplice.www.serysimplice.com Ernesto Djedje, however, is considered the father of Ivorian popular music. Using one of the folk rhythms of the Bete as well as his teacher, Amedee Pierre's dope style. Djedje has long been an advocate of Ivorian music, railing against the "Congolization" of the Abidjan scene. Outside of Cote d'Ivoire, Djedje is best known for 1977's Gnoantre-Zibote, which was a pan-African hit and found some success in France and Canada. He plays a type of music called ziglibithy. Since Djedje, few Ivorian musicians have been able to achieve the same level of fame. Luckson Padaud's laba laba style, which is similar to the Bete ziglibithy, has had some success, as has Gnaore Djimi's polihet. The most popular styles in Cote d'Ivoire are imported reggae from Jamaica and hip hop from the United States; the country has produced notable musicians of both genres, especially Alpha Blondy whose brand of Afro-reggae became a national hit following his appearance on the TV show First chance in 1983.
