Editorial Reviews

"Kiwan and Meinhof imaginatively realize the very concept of network as a complex of paths that converge at hubs, which then serve as sites of transforming African music into the global. The very mobility of musicians we trace through these pages provides critically important new perspectives on globalization and music today."--Philip V. Bohlman, Mary Werkman Distinguished Service Professor of the Humanities and of Music, The University of Chicago, USA
