I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zouk is a musical movement pioneered by the French Antillean band Kassav' in the early 1980s. It was originally characterized by a fast tempo (120–145 bpm), a percussion-driven rhythm and a loud horn section.[1] The fast zouk béton of Martinique and Guadeloupe faded away during the 1980s.[2] Musicians from Martinique and Guadeloupe added MIDI instrumentation to their compas style, which developed into zouk-love.[3][4] Zouk-love is effectively the French Lesser Antilles' compas.[5] Zouk gradually became indistinguishable from the genre known as compas.[5] This light compas influenced the Cape-Verdean new generation.[6]

Zouk béton

The original fast carnival style of zouk, best represented by the band Kassav', became known as "zouk béton", "zouk chiré" or "zouk hard".[7] Zouk béton is considered a synthesis of various French Antillean dance music styles of the 20th century: kadans (cadence), konpa and biguine.[8]
