Notes
Introduction to Black Music surveys the traditional music of Africans and delineates elements utilized in Black music of the western hemisphere. The purpose of this course is to outline the musical heterogeneity of Africans and allow students to gain greater understanding of African music and culture, its impact on the development of Black music in the Americas, and its influence on international trends in music. In this way, the humanist impulse at the center of African people's musical propensity will be revealed, and students' awareness will broaden and deepen in regards to the many genres, contexts, functions, and meanings of traditional African music.
