African Presences I: Music in Africa
MUSC 265
Spring 2010 not offered

This course will explore the diversity and full range of musical expression throughout the African continent by immersing ourselves in a combination of extensive reading, listening to recordings, viewing videos, discussion, and in-class performances. The continent as a whole will be briefly surveyed, regional traits will be explored, and specific pieces, genres, and countries will be discussed in-depth. Students are encouraged to work on preparing pieces in traditional and more innovative formats for a performance workshop at the end of the semester.
