Background The Vosges is a region in north-eastern France close to the German border. In 1944 it was sparsely populated and consisted of wood covered hills, valley pastures and small isolated villages, an ideal area for a small mobile raiding force to operate. In late 1944 it was also the area that General (General (United States)) George Patton's Third Army (Third Army (United States)) was heading towards, but outrunning their supplies they had stopped at Nancy (Nancy, France). To counter the American advance the Germans had moved reinforcements, including the 17th SS Panzergrenadier Division Götz von Berlichingen, into the area. Popular music ''Gbégbé'', a Bété (Bété people) rhythm, has been a part of popular music since Côte d'Ivoire's independence, popularized by Soeurs Comöé and later, Frères Djatys and Sery Simplice. Ernesto Djédjé, however, is considered the father of Ivorian popular music. Using one of the folk rhythms of the Bété, as well as his teacher Amédée Pierre's ''dopé'' style, Djédjé has long been an advocate of Ivorian music, railing against the "Congolization (music of the Democratic Republic of the Congo)" of the Abidjan scene. Outside of Côte d'Ivoire, Djédjé is best known for 1977's ''Gnoantre-Ziboté'', which was a pan-African hit, and found some success in France and Canada. He plays a type of music called ''ziglibithy''. Commons:Category:France WikiPedia:France Dmoz:Regional Europe France
