The World of African Music: Stern's guide to contemporary African music
A companion volume to Stern's "Guide to Contemporary African Music Volume I". Since then the World Music phenomenon of the last few years has created multiple new demands for African music - through recordings, live performances and for information and analysis. This new book digs deeper into the African musical past highlighting new areas of interest and bringing the story up to date. The World of African Music is a guide which gives the flavour and excitement of music from a continent with a richly diverse musical heritage. From Francophone West Africa through the Indian Ocean Islands to South Africa, Ronnie Graham introduces the reader to the roots, rhythms and mutations of African music.
