Music of East Africa
Music of East Africa: Experiencing Music, Experiencing Culture was published in 2004 by Oxford University Press in New York.
"It is in recognition of the importance of ngoma in East African cultures that Oxford University Press has released a new book on East African music.Music in East Africa (2004) by American scholar Gregory Barz, covers Kenyan D.O. Misiani's art and discusses benga, chakacha, and other genres of East African music culture....Music in East Africajoins several studies of East African music to help further research in the areas. Professor Gregory Barz's book will definitely inspire other studies of song, music and dance in Africa. I highly recommend it."
