Produktbeschreibung
There is a dire need for indigenous studies, towards reflecting on, projecting, developing and sustaining cultures that are yet to gain their right place in the global village. This work points out differences and similarities between Nigerian/African and Western music, insisting on indigenous music prominence over the alien rather than the Western music imperialism that obtains currently in most developing nations, especially Nigeria. It also projects, appraises and immortalises an indigenous female artiste of Bekwarra, Northern Cross River, Nigeria, who is a traditional feminist that roused the consciousness of the women of her patriarchal society towards gender issues affecting them. This is thus a very useful material for a comparative study of Nigerian/African music and artistes versus the Western. The invaluable objective knowledge put in here is scholarly, devoid of sentiments/prejudices. It is a must-read for scholars, ethnology-musicologists, sociologists and all who are interested in indigenous (Nigerian/African) knowledge, culture and people, including their music and artistes. Grasp a copy and avail yourself the opportunity of becoming acquainted with this knowledge.
