Africa is the world’s second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia. The continent of Africa is the birthplace of the human species between 8 million and 5 million years ago.
Africa is made up of 54 states and it is so rich and diverse in it’s ethnic and tribal cultures, it’s people and the countries. The main ethno-linguistic divisions are Afro-Asiatic (North Africa, Chad, Horn of Africa), Niger-Congo (mostly Bantu) in most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Nilo-Saharan in parts of the Sahara and the Sahel and parts of Eastern Africa, and Khoisan (indigenous minorities of Southern Africa).
Africa’s art and craft, music, and oral literature document and preserve the essence of the ethnic and tribal cultures.
