Abstract: Music permeates African societies and peoples’ daily lives. Of the several cultural expressions, music has revealed its centrality to African resistance, to nationalism, to the complex relations between people, politics, and identity formation in differentiated locations over the colonial period and after the African countries’ independences. This talk reflects on the development of Mozambique’s popular music in the 1990s and its effects on cultural identity formation.
