Contemporary Dimensions in Nigerian Music

A Festschrift for Arugha Aboyowa Ogisi

edited by Charles Aluede, Albert Oikelome, Yemi Akperi, Oghenemudiakevwe Igbi

From ancient to contemporary times, music in the area known as Nigeria has passed through different stages of transmutation. Primarily transmitted through oral means has in the last century received significant scholarly attention. Areas like folksong documentation, ethno-organological studies, popular music studies and art music have continued to feature in scholarly discourse. Societal dynamism allows room for scholarly reassessment and evaluation of aspects of Nigerian music; thus, reflecting change and continuity in the area. It is within this cusp that this book looks at contemporary trajectories in Nigerian music.
