For more than a quarter century African Music, the author’s acclaimed 1991 bibliography, has been a standard reference work on the subject. Now, at long last, we have its companion. Comprised of entirely new material, Music of Sub-Saharan Africa offers users a comprehensive guide to the enormous literature which has emerged on sub-Saharan music and dance in recent decades.
This much expanded and revised edition is organized into five easy to navigate sections—General Works; Musical Instruments; Regional Studies; African Music Abroad; and Biographical and Critical Studies—allowing users to quickly access the information they need. It also includes a detailed subject index which offers a key to all of the book’s sections and another way to quickly pinpoint citations by topic, genre, instrument type, geographical location or ethnic group.
