"What is Zouk?" and "why here?" you may be asking ... well, first of all, it begins with the letter "Z" as this IS the A to Z Music Shop !! And we always live up to our name, stand behind our products and back up what we say ! But if you're here for Zithers then click it & shop; otherwise stay & enjoy !

Seriously though, Zouk is a fast jump-up carnival beat originating from the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, popularized by the French Antillean band Kassav' in the 1980s. Very rapid in tempo, the style lost ground in the 1980s due to the strong presence of kadans or compas, the main music of the French Antilles. Today, Zouk is the French Antilles "compas", also called Zouk-Love.

This musical genre is special, unique & upbeat which represents the spirit and philosophy behind the "A to Z Music Shop" ~ THE One-Stop Music Shop ! We sincerely welcome you here & wish you happy shopping & joyous listening !!!
