Abstract:

"Black Music of Two Worlds is a classic text showing the vast influence of African music on musical cultures throughout the world. First published in 1972, the book forecast today's interest in world music and the cross-pollination of musical cultures. In this new edition, the author has thoroughly revisited the text, adding new information about recent musical styles. The book begins with a study of African roots, and then shows how these musics were preserved and transformed on the North American continent, in the Caribbean, and in South and Central America. It then traces the flow of musical styles back from the New World to Africa. This is the only book to show the pervasive influence of African styles on a wide variety of musics, from traditional folk and blues to jazz to salsa, calypso, reggae, and rap. Book jacket."--Jacket.
