The African Diaspora presents musical case studies from various regions of the African diaspora, including Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, North America, and Europe, that engage with broader interdisciplinary discussions about race, gender, politics, nationalism, and music. Featured here are jazz, wassoulou music, and popular and traditional musics of the Caribbean and Africa, framed with attention to the reciprocal relationships of the local and the global.

Reviews

"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
