The Aka are a nomadic pygmy group that live in the Brazzaville region of the Republic of the Congo and the southwestern Central African Republic.

Aka music is very complex. It's known for its contrapuntal group improvisation. This means the voices harmonize, but they have different rhythms... all while improvising.

Even lullabies have two complementary parts.

Regarding the meaning of the songs, very few actual words are used.
