Kakaoa eta musika Ginea Ekuatorialean = Cacao y música en Guinea Ecuatorial = Cocoa and music in Equatorial Guinea
In emerging urban societies, music is part of the relations between social sectors, linked to factors of ethnic group, class or origin. Cocoa cultivation in Fernando Poo during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries brought together African workers (Creoles, Bubis, Africans from the coasts, Krumanes, Cubans, etc.) in a confluence of encounters that would result in exchanges of musical genres such as the cumbé, the bonkó or the maringa.
Genres that would be at the root of the formation of popular music in Africa and reflect complex trajectories derived from slavery, abolitionism and colonialism, providing identities and meanings and resulting in a wealth of African culture that is still present today.
