About this title


Euba's creative and scholarly work privileges crossover idioms; an intercultural syntax within which village signals are inscribed with transcontinental meanings; the dynamics of change and identity in twentieth century Africa; the interaction between Africa's music traditions and those of the Diaspora. The occasion of his seventieth birthday provides us with an opportunity to examine some of the themes that seek to redefine new directions in African musicology and beyond.

In this collection of essays, the authors explore the nexus between creativity and knowledge, old and new music traditions, and local and global perspectives--themes, which constantly resonate with Euba's work. These scholars have drawn from multiple perspectives--reflecting their diverse and transcendental cultural and academic orientations as African/Africanist musicologists and ethnomusicologists; as composers, performers, and analysts of intercultural art music; as advocates of Black Diaspora studies.
