Discourses in African Musicology: J.H. Kwabena Nketia Festschrift highlights the proceedings of a 2011 conference at the University of Ghana in honor of Professor J.H. Kwabena Nketia on his 90th birthday. Professor Nketia was instrumental in shaping the field of ethnomusicology and providing the foundation for an African Musicology. The conference gave scholars and performers an occasion to explore the multi-faceted subject of African music studies, and provided its many attendees the opportunity to extend the scholarly discourse on African music.
