About this book

This book is about South-North, North-South relations between Africa and Europe, presenting the personal narratives of musicians in different locations across Africa and Europe, and those of the people who constitute their networks within the wider artistic, cultural, and civil society milieus of globalizing societies.

Reviews

'Kiwan and Meinhof imaginatively realize the very concept of network as a complex of paths that converge at hubs, which then serve as sites of transforming African music into the global. The very mobility of musicians we trace through these pages provides critically important new perspectives on globalization and music today'

- Philip V. Bohlman, Mary Werkman Distinguished Service Professor of the Humanities and of Music, The University of Chicago, USA

'The authors offer a compelling narrative, showing great sensitivity...the book will be extremely useful to scholars interested in the processes that create contemporary transnational artists' networks.' -Bulletin of Francophone Postcolonial Studies
