Summary

For students of world music and world cultures, this authoritative work provides an in-depth survey of the full spectrum of black and white South African music. In 1986, Paul Simon's Graceland introduced millions to the sounds of South Africa. But Simon's album explores only a few of the many types of music originating within South Africa's borders ''a musical culture that epitomizes the enormous ethnic, religious, linguistic, class and gender diversity of the nation itself. The author looks at how South Africans (black and white) have used music to express a sense of place in South Africa, on the African continent, and around the world. Drawing on extensive field and archival research, as well as her own personal experiences, noted ethnomusicologist and South African native Carol A. Muller explores the range of sources that make music from South Africa related to, yet so distinct from, other music from the African continent and around the world. The accompanying CD offers vividexamples of traditional, popular, and classical South African musical styles.
