African Music: Books and Articles

Reference Sources on African Music

The Libraries own many online and print sources to provide information on a variety of musical traditions of Africa. When you find print sources in the catalog, note their location (Davis Library, Undergraduate Library, Music Library, etc). Below is a list of some reference sources to get you started.

For additional resources, enter an Keyword search in the Library catalog on  "Music [country]" (for example: "Music Kenya") and then limit your search results to books or audio, etc. You can also search by people groups or individual artists.
