Afropean is said to be a word first coined by Talking Heads singer David Byrne to describe the music of Belgo-Congolese group ‘Zap Mama’. It was later popularized by amongst others, the Afro-French sister duo Les Nubians.
Broadly taken an Afropean is;
- A European with African ancestors.
- A member of the black diaspora living in Europe
- A mixed race individual of African origin living in Europe.
- Any African living and/or working in Europe with a (semi) permanent status.
