Book Description

This book explores the music of Africa and its experience in modern education, offering music education analyses from African perspectives. The collection assembles insights from around Africa to bring African and non-African scholars into the world of music, education, policy, and assessment as played out across the continent. The music of Africa presents multiple avenues for the understanding of the reality of life from a cultural perspective. The teaching and learning of this music closely follows its practice, the latter involving a combination of artistic expressions. With international interest in world music, there is need to engage with concepts and processes of this music. The volume offers new research from culture bearers, scholars, and educators rooted in practices that provide deeper perceptions of the cultural expression of music. With sections focussing on Concepts in Musical Arts, Musical Arts Processes, and Music Education Practice, it captures and documents the concept of musical arts from an African experiential perspective. Articulating the processes of musical arts and their implications for teaching and learning in both African and international learning contexts, it presents a balanced view of music as a phenomenon and generates material for discussion. A valuable resource for those seeking insight into aspects of music practice in Africa, this book will appeal to scholars of Music Education, Ethnomusicology, Community Music, African Studies, and African Music.
