Monzombo a.k.a. Monzombo, Mondjembo, and possibly Kpala/Kwala/Yango, is an Ubangian language spoken at and around the Equator in both the ROC and the DRC. This is a song that I'm at least guessing is in Monzombo (I'm not sure from which side of the Congo River exactly :P EDIT: It's probably from the ROC since it says it was filmed in Mossaka, which is in the ROC):

Someone on Duolingo mentioned Cheb Kahled's "Aiche" last night and it's been stuck in my head since. This is a fan-made video, as I can't find the original music video for this--seems someone is getting fussy about copyright in their old age :lol:

(ar-DZ) I'll use the Algerian flag as Khaled is Algerian, but this French language song is arguably his best known hit:

One of Ivan Kupala's songs was buffalaxed into Malayalam. :lol:

The Banda languages are a group of Ubangian languages spoken in Central Africa, especially in the Central African Republic but also to some extent in South Sudan and the DRC. This is a a clip of religious (Christian evangelical?) music in one of the Banda languages, but I'm not sure which one yet. It's apparently from the Central African Republic and called "Tolotche"; the group is called "Réveil de l'orient," and the producer is Aboubakar Hadji:

Ngbandi is a dialect continuum of the Ubangian family spoken in the CAR and DRC, and Northern Ngbandi is the lexical source of Sango, the lingua franca of the CAR. IIUC, the songs in the background of this video are in Ngbandi, and the dance in this video is called gbaduma and is one of the traditional dances of the CAR:

Study music at the moment

Again, I don't make any claim that binaural/monarual beats work as advertised. I just like listening to this stuff when I study.

This is a live stream of more hip-hop style beats for studying that I was listening to earler today: ChilledCow. The chat is a little distracting so I just put the video on fullscreen. It's a cute animation at least.

Binza a.k.a. Binja or Libinza is one of the Bangi-Ntomba languages, somewhat closely related to Bangi and Lingala, but from a different branch of the group. This video I think may just be in Lingala and is actually an interview, it seems, but it begins and ends with the same song AFAICT, and I think that song could be in Binza (or that could just be my wishful thinking :P) along with a tiny bit of spoken French:

I'm feeling low this morning (dealing with some depression and anxiety). Trying to get myself into a different headspace with Buridane...

This is a video of African music from Encarta 2007 (apparently). I'm just listening to the instrumental piece from 2:36 to 2:59, "Trumpets" performed by speakers of one of the Banda languages in the Central African Republic. I grew up with most of the songs in this video (except the Ugandan one EDIT: and the one at the end by Youssou N'Dour) and have posted the full versions of some of these songs on this forum:

Yansi a.k.a. Yanzi, Yans(?), or Eyansi is a Bantu language, apparently of uncertain affiliation, spoken in the southwestern DRC, not far from the town of Bandundu (the language indigenously spoken in Bandundu is apparently Ibali Teke). This is a song in Yansi that I guess is called "Bana 'A Yansi":

Mbala a.k.a. Gimbala or Rumbala is another Bantu language spoken in the DRC near Bandundu. It's apparently part of a small group of Bantu languages called Holu-Pende. This is a song apparently in Mbala and called "Mumembu." The video title makes it sound like it's a folk song, but the style of the song doesn't sound so much like it to me at least:

Pende a.k.a. Phende or Giphende is another Bantu language spoken in Bandundu Province (but spoken further away from the city of Bandundu and closer to the border with Angola), apparently closely related to Mbala. This is apparently a song in Pende by Gisupha T. Mungandji called "APhende":
