Thinking-Out-Loud is a genre of music mostly based on percussion and voice where people share together thoughts around the dissatisfaction with this world. It has an affinity with rap, but Thinking-Out-Loud does not require any qualities in regards to rhyme or any other musical abilities. It is like opening the curtain of what is going on in your head and share it with others without any filtering or trying to sound clever. Thinking-Out-Loud is influenced by the People's mic and Caceroladas (protests with pots and pans) and also by musical genres such as Cuban rumba and Nigerian Waka, Apala and Sakara.
However here the percussion does not require to follow any specific rhythm. It sometimes start just with a conversation in which slowly the percussive elements start to intervene and the sentences can become more fragmented while the others repeat the sentences in form of a chorus resembling the human microphone.
It is often performed in the public sphere.
