About the Author:

Ingrid Monson is Quincy Jones Professor of African American Music at Harvard University. She won the Sonneck Society's 1998 Irving Lowens Prize for the best book in American music for her 1996 Saying Something, Jazz Improvisation and Interaction. She was also a founding member of the nationally known Klezmer Conservatory Band, and plays trumpet with jazz and salsa bands. Monson previously was Associate Professor of Music at Washington University in St. Louis, and has taught at the University of Michigan, Harvard (as Visiting Professor), and University of Chicago. She has a Ph.D. and an M.A. in Musicology from NYU, and a B.M. from New England Conservatory. Monson is currently working on two books: one on the impact of the Civil Rights Movement and African Independence on the history of jazz, and one on the musics of the African Diaspora.

Review:

"I found "The African Diaspora: A Musical Perspective to be refreshing and above all, stimulating. This volume offers scholars a reading on various musical genres and the manner by which each mirrors aspects of identity, tradition and modernity, local musical traditions, and the effects of globalization--all important agents in the shaping and making of the African diaspora. After reading the entire volume, I have decided to use it as a primary text for my graduate seminar on African-American music. Furthermore, I certainly foresee its merit as a seminal text in diasporic, cultural criticism, and music scholarship. Hence, I unequivocally recommend "The African Diaspora as an important work in the understanding of African diasporic music and culture.."
-Cheryl Keyes, UCLA/Ethnomusicology Online No. 7, November 2001
