Since it is Portuguese TV station, the music show focuses mainly on the half dozen or so Portuguese-speaking countries such as Angola. Is it like that across the rest of black Africa as well?
It looks like Congolese music and dance styles have spread like wildfire around Africa. That music & dance style originated in Zaire/Congo a long time ago. If you look up CD's from Cape Verde, the traditional music from there, and the contemporary music that's based on the the traditional music, are completely different. That piece you picked is not typical of Cape Verde style, it's an import.
