    I am looking to upgrade my music collection and was wondering if anyone can make good recommendations for music (albums and/or artists) from the world community of African people...both continental and diasporal. I'm looking for traditional, jazz (primarily instrumental), and blues....only the positive messages and vibes please. If you can, please indicate the genre and where the music/artist originates. Thanks! :)
