The city of Columbia is quickly becoming a center for tribal beats and more progressive pop music. Artists have been flocking to the area because of the rapid growth of a musical culture that has fostered elevated levels of artistic expression. The artists that are being brought up in Columbia are growing up with a strong appreciation of percussion and the lyrical beat of rap artists’ performances.
Even local rock bands have a noticeable hip hop accent to their musical language. The recording industry’s presence is significantly influenced by the nearby beach. The people who are attracted to the area and their tropical cultures have flooded into every aspect of rock. The metal genre has remained aloof for most of this tribal invasion.
This is to be expected. When it comes to a genre that depends on a picky, ‘purist’ fan base like metal, external musical influences are not going to take hold like they otherwise would. That being said, the metal bands in the area are excellent. Even country music has fallen for the seductive charms of tribal drums.
It is in places like this that world-famous stars are made. Through inspiration, determination and hard work, artists of all musical genres are excelling in this great town.
