Africa is a home of diverse traditional, cultural and religious heritages. One of these heritages and modes of their religious expressions is music. In Africa, music and religion act as a single entity; they are inseparable. The African worship traditions have greatly influenced the contemporary worship practices of African churches. From a cultural point of view, African people do not feel comfortable in a controlled or solemn church environment where emotions are not expressed freely.
African churches enjoy a more demonstrative and expressive form of worship. Therefore, they usually tend to associate their music with movements and actions, such as clapping, stomping feet, dancing, and playing native percussion instruments. Percussion instruments are at the heart of the African music; therefore, percussion plays a vital role in the Christian worship music as well. An interesting feature of the African worship is that members are fully involved in the whole service.
As African churches develop and start to grow into big numbers, music ministries and musicians become very important. They serve local churches and support church evangelism movements. Local churches will also support local music ministries and musicians to join the development of churches.
Let the children of God in Africa praise Him and testify His goodness forever and always!
