Liberia is a West African country. Its musical heritage includes several important genres of pop derived from neighbors like Ghana (highlife) and Sierra Leone (palm wine music). Liberia also boats an array of indigenous folk music, Christian music and influences from its Americo-Liberian minority.
Christian music was introduced to Liberia by American missionaries, and Christian songs are now sung in native languages in a style that mixes American harmonies with West African rhythms and a call-and-response format.
Past and present musicians include Tejajlu, Molly Dorley and Miatta Fahnbulleh,Hawa Daisy Moore,Fatu Gayflor, Zack and Gebah,T. Kpan Nimely . Of these Dorley deserves special notice for having spearheaded a movement to create a national Liberian identity, alongside musicians like Anthony "Experience" Nagbe.
