…I was entertained with an agreeable serenade by a black man who had taken his stand near the Tavern and for the amusement of those of his colour, sung and played on the Bangoe. He appeared to be quite adept on this African instrument. Its wild notes of melody seem to correspond with the state of Civilization of the Country where this species of music originated.

~ Thomas Fairfax, Richmond, VA, 1799
