Joseph Odindo's Musical Influence

I have realized that I have such a wide spectrum in taste of music. Joseph Odindo has a blog that talks about different types of African music, and after listening to some myself, I’m glad I found Joseph Odindo’s blog. The rhythms of the drums are soothing, yet powerful, and I can totally understand how music is such a vital component in so many people’s lives.

Music can make you feel things you’ve never felt before. Joseph Odindo claims that Africa was the birthplace of music, and I’m inclined to think he’s right. The drum rhythms and beats in most music can be traced back to origins of music they’ve been playing in Africa for hundreds of years.
