Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The first in what will be a 10-volume set covering music around the world, Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Africa is a fascinating, informative presentation describing what may be to Westerners the most unfamiliar music of the world. Editor Ruth Stone of Indiana University, who has long been studying and writing about African music, has brought together a multitude of distinguished scholars and authorities from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the U.S. to provide historical, cultural, and societal insights into the music of the African continent. It is "intended to present a comprehensive view of the music of Africa from the perspectives of those who have studied it and those who make it." Music, dance, and life all combine in African societies, and there are many variations across the continent. Arrangement is not alphabetical but topical and regional (by linguistic families), with each chapter written by a scholar. The volume is divided into three parts. The first, Introduction to African Music, discusses Africa as a whole and includes four chapters, with the longest titled "The Scholarly Study of African Music: A Historical Review." Part 2, Issues and Processes in African Music, has 17 chapters covering themes such as the integration of music with other arts and practices and the integration of various cultures as people moved to and within Africa.Representative chapter titles include "Notation and Oral Tradition," "Tumbuka Healing," and "Intra-African Streams of Influence." The last part provides regional case studies giving overviews of five areas (West, North, East, Central, and Southern Africa) as well as such particular chapters as "Praise Singing in Northern Sierra Leone," "Music and Poetry in Somalia," and "Harmony in Luvale Music of Zambia." There are many black-and-white photographs and illustrations, both historical and contemporary, and many examples of musical and rhythmical notation throughout the volume. Some pages have large print quotes from the text set off for emphasis, and others provide a few definitions of terms and phrases used, set in smaller print. Both notation and words are given for many songs; words usually include both the original language and English. No pronunciations are provided. A compact disc of music illustrating various performance practices accompanies the volume so one can both read about and listen to examples of the music. Symbols are used in the text margins to indicate relevant track numbers on the disc. All chapters have references listed including articles, books, theses, and recordings. The volume ends with a series of guides to further resources, each divided by region: an extensive bibliography, a guide to recordings of African music, and a guide to films and videos. In addition, there are notes on the audio examples, a glossary, and a detailed index. The index is certainly required to give full use of the volume for reference purposes. One thing that's missing is a list of contributors with their credentials and affiliations; perhaps this will be included in the final volume of the set. Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Africa is unique in its scope and viewpoint. If all volumes measure up to the first, it will indeed be a major publishing event. In the meantime, the Africa volume will be a must purchase for all academic music libraries, and, indeed, for any academic or large public library with a clientele of anthropologists, linguists, historians, sociologists, or Africanists. It is a tour de force that provides scholarly insights into this relatively unknown but important part of the world's music and culture."
