This course will explore the diversity and full range of musical expression in the Americas--with a focus on musics with a strong African historical or cultural presence--by immersing ourselves in a combination of extensive reading, listening to recordings, viewing videos, discussion, and in-class performances. The hemisphere as a whole will be briefly surveyed and regional traits will be explored, but emphasis will be placed on specific pieces, genres, and countries.
