And if you look within much black American music and dance you will see many African influences. I dont think that Swedish or German immigrants would have developed this culture.

Slightly off topic. At first, it is unbelievable that this is a Canadian singing group. Sadly, they are no longer together, but one of their albums, Mafaro, is still available for purchase. Some of their songs have a heavy drum influence, others just vocals. They were named, "Juba".
