Azonto - Ghana
Azonto as a genre revolves around a dance from Ghana that went viral. The music is an uptempo pop style mixed with rhythms from the Ga ethnic group, most of which are based in the country's capital, Accra. The vocalists who lace the Azonto beats get most of the fame, although they don't limit themselves to the one style and often come from other countries. Sarkodie is one of Ghana's most well known artists and he won a BET Award for best international act last year. He helped bring Azonto to the masses with "U Go Kill Me."
