9780226874654: Juju: A Social History and Ethnography of an African Popular Music (Chicago Studies in Ethnomusicology)

Now known internationally through the recordings of King Sunny Ade and others, juju music originated more than fifty years ago among the Yoruba of Nigeria. This history and ethnography of juju is the first detailed account of the evolution and social significance of a West African popular music. Enhanced with maps, color photographs of musicians and dance parties, musical transcriptions, interviews with musicians, and a glossary of Yoruba terms, Juju is an invaluable contribution to scholarship and a boon to fans who want to discover the roots of this vibrant music.

From the Back Cover:

This is the first book to provide a detailed account of the evolution and social significance of a West African popular music. The author describes the origins of Juju in the colonial capital of Lagos during the early 1930's and follows its development through Nigerian independence and the oil boom years of the early 1980's.

Review:

"What's most impressive about Juju is how much Waterman makes of his purism. By concentrating on one long- lived, well-defined genre, he helps the Western reader experience 'rock' the way any proud Yoruba would—as a tributary of African music rather than vice versa." (Robert Christgau The Village Voice)
