Musical arts in Africa: theory, practice and education
Edited by Anri Herbst, Meki Nzewi and Kofi Agawu
How are the musical arts learnt and practised? What are the imperatives of indigenous theory for playing, dancing, improvising, narrating and composing with or without notation? How are the arts integrated and what is technology's role in stimulating practice?
Musical arts in Africa: theory, practice and education is the collaborative result of 31 African music scholars from 10 different countries who draw on the multidisciplinary perspectives of musicology, composition, performing practice, ethnomusicology and education to guide contemporary reflection on these and other issues. This publication features several music examples, diagrams, tables and photographs, offering complete arrangements of songs and analysis of compositions that can be used for teaching purposes. It uses music on the accompanying double compact disc and video to illustrate concepts.
The topics covered are:
This package (a book, double compact disc and video) is a valuable resource for students and educators. It will inspire fresh discussion on the role of the musical arts in Africa and affirm – in the manner of the slit drum, one of Africa's oldest instruments of communication – African perspectives in transmitting knowledge in modern Africa.

While the individual voice has been given its rightful place, the collective voice represents an emergent song composed by the scholarly community in oral fashion.
