This course will introduce students to issues, ideas, personalities, styles and important works of the African musical experience. The primary focus will be on music of Western Africa. Music of other areas will be briefly included. The course will also trace the influences of African music on African American music in the form of African American folk songs. Hands-on skills will be included during classroom playing of African instruments. Some concert attendance requirements may be included if available. (This course is also cross-listed with African Studies.)
