Summary

Summary

The people of West Africa depend on music to nourish nearly every phase of their lives. In the ceremonies and rituals celebrating birth, marriage, initiations and religious occasions, music is prescribed for each occasion...These recordings range from music for entertainment to pass the long, hot summer days and to supply ceremonial dance sounds to music for curing the ill, for informal dances, and to play late in the evening, usually for men only. ~ MusD
