Review quote

"Those genuinely interested in the transgressive and transcendent potential of performance and cultural production as well as the political power of transcultural solidarity would do well to engage Yellow Power Yellow Soul."--Journal of Asian American Studies "This powerful volume is an antiphonal response to Fred Ho's revolutionary music and politics. Ho's aesthetics are assertive, demanding, unequivocal, absolute, polemical, unrelenting, and beautiful, and his friends and colleagues have responded in kind. This collection carries forward Ho's message."--Deborah Wong, author of Speak It Louder: Asian Americans Making Music "[Yellow Power, Yellow Soul] provides great insight into Ho's formative years, his writing process with a variety of collaborators, and the evolution of his aesthetics and philosophies."--Journal of the Society for American Musicshow more
