The Music of the African Diaspora series is a dynamic collection of work invested in the exploration and documentation of the long global histories of Black musical innovation. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the series highlights the ways in which the sonic practices and traditions of the African descended engage in and reflect varying racial, social, and political formations across time and space. These award-winning books interpret the music and animate its context in order to amplify the sounds of the Black world.
