Editorial Reviews


"Contains over 5,000 references to studies of black music in Africa and the New World. The entries are organized into four geographical sections: Africa, the Caribbean, the Southern Americas, and the Northern Americas. Within each section items are listed by country or state, preceded by items on the area in general....Two indexes are provided: an author index and an index of African Culture Groups, directing the reader to the appropriate country listings for a given tribal name....this is an important addition to earlier bibliographies of African music, which DeLerma advises should also be consulted: Varley (1936), Merriam (1951), Thieme (1964), Gaskin (1965), Laade (1971), and (on Afro-American music) Szwed and Whitten (1978)." -- Choice
