Editorial Reviews

"Marie Jorritsma's book signals nothing less than a whole new departure in South African musical studies. It is the first serious attempt to account for the role of ‘coloured’ music in the country's wider acoustic landscape. This has never been tried before. Sonic Spaces of the Karoo is written in an accessible style, it is theoretically grounded, and it is rich in ethnographic description. I highly recommend it."—Veit Erlmann, Endowed Chair of Music History, Professor of Ethnomusicology and Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin, and author of Reason and Resonance: A History of Modern Aurality
