Since the inauguration of the World Music recording industry, West African Music has entered the global market place at a steadily increasing rate. There has also been a growing interest, within the West, in playing African drums and learning African dance. Today the djembe drum of West Africa is a common fixture in not only folk ensembles, but also within American popular music. In this course we will study the music of Francophone West Africa both in its original context and its more globalized manifestations.
