Back cover copy

'The author's experience with the Beta Israel, the Falashas of Ethiopia, in the early 1970s may be the last in-situ scholarly account we can expect, because the revolution and civil war prevented subsequent access to them... One would not have expected ethnomusicological research to have been quite so exciting nor the scholarly implications of the findings to be so provoking and critical in understanding the social evolution of a population. Highly recommended for both undergraduate and graduate collections in ethnomusicology, anthropology, African, and Judiac studies.'-L.D. Loeb, Choiceshow more
