Overview

Based upon original fieldwork projects, 12 essays from academics representing a variety of disciplines address the interrelatedness of music, religion, and ritual in African performance practice. Several emphasize indigenous religious and ritual practices while another focuses on the influence of Islam in West Africa. Other topics include healing as an aspect of performance and the ways in which Christianity has been integrated into the lives of Africans and African-Americans. The volume does not contain an index.
