    The Garland handbook of African music

    "The Garland Handbook of African Music is comprised of essays from The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Volume 1, Africa, (1997). Revised and updated, the essays offer detailed, regional studies of the different musical cultures of Africa and examine the ways in which music helps to define the identity of this particular area. Part I provides an in-depth introduction to Africa. Part II focuses on issues and processes, such as notation and oral tradition, dance in communal life, and intellectual property. Part III focuses on the different regions, countries, and cultures of Africa with selected regional case studies. The second edition has been expanded to include exciting new scholarship that has been conducted since the first edition was published. Questions for Critical Thinking at the end of each major section guide and focus attention on what issues ? musical and cultural ? arise when one studies the music of Africa ? issues that might not occur in the study of other musics of the world. An accompanying audio compact disc offers musical examples of some of the music of Africa."--Publisher's website.

    The Silk Road music, art, and poetry from Istanbul to Samarqand

    "Traces the Silk Road through Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, and Central Asia, where Islam flourished after the 7th century with an artistic renaissance that reflected the beauty of Persian culture. The legendary journey of the caravans forms a backdrop for this region's exquisite legacy of music, poetry, and visual arts. The DVD features six selections of Persian classical music and Sufi music recorded up to 40 years ago, with 140 photos of Islamic art and architecture in historic Silk Road cities of western Asia. From Istanbul, a choir performs Persian poetry in its traditional form, through song. Persian classical music of the 6th century unfolds as the expression of a moment in time, or a state of being. A Sufi call to prayer is performed on the ney, a reed flute whose tone is the symbol of the ecstatic, in an order of Dervishes founded in the 13th century by the poet Jallaludin Rumi. A Sufi melody is performed on the ney in the mode of nostalgia, bringing the past and present together in a timeless rhythm. A flute solo from Samarqand improvises on a Sufi theme, evoking the mystical feeling of this ancient land"--www.silkroadmusicandart.com.
