With love as its central theme, this musical genre was born in Guadeloupe in the 1970s. Jacob Devarieux is said to have created zouk with Kassav, the first group of the genre according to many specialists, the most emblematic and, for a long time, the most famous zouk group. Who in his time did not sing "Zouk la sé sél médikaman nou ni"? Very early on this music became popular in the West Indies - with Gilou, Mariot Chico, with Expérience 7 - which went from Kadan to Zouk - before taking the form of a movement in the 1980s with big names such as Harry Diboula, Edith Lefel, Guy Bordé, Jocelyne Labile, Rodrigue Marcel, Darius Denon, the list is long. Zouk music eventually conquered the whole world.
