This course is an introduction to the music of Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to exploring the diversity of indigenous musics throughout the continent, students will learn how migration, colonialism, nationalism, and globalization contributed to the development of African popular musics, from early twentieth century genres to contemporary Afrobeats. Engaging scholarly and popular media texts, musical recordings, and documentary films, students will explore how music has negotiated political, economic, and health crises, and will critically examine the relationship between music and global representations of Africa.
