Editorial Reviews

Carol Muller

"The archival and ethnographic research is outstanding, the accounts of mission history, and then the musical explanations of a variety of forms of change that have accompanied mission intervention, the incursion of forms of modernity, and globalization at large are compelling and unparalleled." —Carol Muller, University of Pennsylvania

Eric Charry

"The author has extraordinary access and insight into how song functions among the Logooli. The book contains an excellent mix of deep personal understanding of the culture and copious documentation." —Eric Charry, Wesleyan University
