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.
From the Publisher:

In eleven original essays, this collection examines such diverse musics and issues as the blues aesthetic and the African diaspora in jazz performance; different versions of the 1939 song "Mbube," also known as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"; the globalization of jazz from an insider's perspective; the power of women in the popular wassoulou music of Mali; the mamaya repertory of Guinea in the 1930s and 40s; Yoruba folk opera; traditional Ewe music as taught by the Dagbe Cultural Institute in Ghana; the role of militarism in Haitian vodou music; musical revivals and social movements in contemporary Martinique; and the role of African diaspora in the music and statements of jazz drummer Art Blakey. The contributors in this volume address why music claims such pride of place in the African diasporic population, and to provide particular examples of the interweaving of the local and global in the lives of musicians and their audiences.
