A Troubadour's thread by Sanya Osha( file )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
This volume powerfully conveys the pilgrimage of a singular spirit through adversity, equanimity, immanence and eventually, transcendence. It grapples with a range of emotions, topics and sensations. Christopher Okigbo achieved similar results but in an entirely different manner. Okigboís vision is epical in its dimensions while Oshaís work is infused with a sustained lyricism, mutedness or even more appropriately, quietude. Oshaís poetry unveils a multi-layered journey from artistic infancy to complete aesthetic maturity. Most of this journey dwells upon the poetís inner states in which vast

Sur la philosophie africaine : critique de l'ethnophilosophie by Paulin J Hountondji( file )
2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Many contemporary African writers remain trapped in the quest for a worldview, philosophy, supposing a single "African" demesne to explain the entire continent, referring to a mythical past. Paulin Hountondji shows how these strange conceptual constructions have played a positive role in the resistance led by intellectuals of colonial rule: they responded to the negation of the oppression that it comprised of, but it was an ambiguous answer, especially because it was built on the principles derived from the works of European ethnologists, particularly the Pere Tempels. Independence opened a new historical period; these philosophical elaborations changed direction: once an expression of anti-colonial resistance, they are nowadays an ideology that justifies and reinforces the dominance of the contemporary state; the intellectuals who create them are today only the "griots" of the regimes in place. Analysing without complacency the work of Nkrumah, of the Cameroonian Towa, and of the Rwandan Kagame, amongst others, Hountondji exposes and denounces this antagonism. To him, the critical project proposed in this book seems a necessary step on the way to "the liberation of theoretical creativity," the peoples of Africa and their full participation in the universal intellectual debate!

Sounding the Cape music, identity and politics in South Africa by Denis Martin( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
For several centuries Cape Town has accommodated a great variety of musical genres which have usually been associated with specific population groups living in and around the city. Musical styles and genres produced in Cape Town have therefore been assigned an ìidentityî which is first and foremost social. This volume tries to question the relationship established between musical styles and genres, and social ñ in this case pseudo-racial ñ identities. In Sounding the Cape, Denis-Constant Martin recomposes and examines through the theoretical prism of creolisation the history of music in Cape T
