Format: Paperback
The Garland Handbook Of African Music is a single volume compilation of informative essays written by the leading scholars in the field of African music. This outstanding reference explores all aspects of African music as it explores the content and its many musical forms. Included is a thorough discussion of the issues and processes in the study of African music, illustrated by a number of regional case studies covering North, West, East, Central, and Southern Africa. The Garland Handbook Of African Music is enhanced with an accompanying 60 minute CD, a glossary, and guides to publications, recordings, films and videos. The Garland Handbook Of African Music is an invaluable, highly recommended addition to personal, professional, and academic multicultural and African music reference collections.
