I started listening to Salsa and Afro-Beat back in the late 70s, and the rhythms, and the way that Cuban or Nigerian musicians played with, or in counterpoint to, each other, still excite me more than the average rock drummer going boom-thwack, boom-boom-thwack. It also never bothered me that I couldn't understand the lyrics.
