Reviews for The African Diaspora: A Musical Perspective

The African Diaspora: A musical Perspective explores the relationship of music to the emergence of African Diaspora sensibilities in the late twentieth century in a nuanced and refreshing way, and will reward repeated readings. The volume will provide valuable insights to scholars who teach or conduct research in African/African Diaspora studies, anthropology, cultural criticism, or musicology. -- Frank Gunderson, Florida State University,Notes
