Presents musical case studies from various regions including Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, North America, and Europe, that engage with broader interdisciplinary issues about race, gender, politics, nationalism and music. In eleven original essays, this collection examines such diverse musics and issues as the blues aesthetic, the globalisation of jazz and the role of militarism in Hatian vodou music. The African Diaspora answers the question of why music claims such pride of place in the African diasporic imagination.
