Abstract

book r eviews 403 helped influenced the rise of isicathamiya choirs in South a frica, and Christian missionaries introduced e uropean-derived musical forms and idioms to a frican composers. In the late twentieth century, jazz, a fro- Cuban, Calypso, soul, disco, and reggae influenced highlife dance bands and other popular music in a frica. The Transformation of Black Music covers a wide range of topics that are ana- lyzed through the lenses of a distinguished pioneering scholar who devoted a lifetime to research, scholarship, writing, and preservation of black music in a global context. Samuel Floyd innovatively examines complex issues related to the music of a frica and the a frican diaspora in this, his final thinking on these topics. This book pulls together an encyclopedic array of scholarship from a variety of disciplines, and it presents this research in a concise and accessible manner for the reader. The book is a new and welcomed comprehensive guide to research of music of a frica and the a frican diaspora. Josephine r . b.
