Coupé décalé

Coupé Décalé is a type of popular dance music originating from Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and the Ivorian diaspora in Paris, France. Drawing heavily from Zouglou and Congolese rhythms, Coupé-Décalé is a very percussive style featuring African samples, deep bass, and repetitive, minimalist arrangements. When I saw this video for the first time it immediately reminded me of a mix of Dancehall dances and Tecktonik. Check out this video of these Congolese youth killing this dance. Enjoy!

Thank You Melly Mel for putting me on to this.
