    DESCRIPTION:
    The sounds of Africa have been infiltrating Western music and culture for some time. This book traces the development of the various musical styles, from their ancient and traditional forms to the hybrid fusions that have evolved as a result of collaboration between African musicians such as Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba. Describing the instruments used, the book looks at the main centres of music development and activity, and explores each region and its own rhythms in detail. The spread and influence of African music is discussed, and information is provided on such topics as major festivals, African clubs and magazines.
