Archipelagos of sound; transnational Caribbeanities, women and music.

Ed. by Ifeona Fulani.

U. of the West Indies Press


342 pages



Fourteen chapters, presented by Fulani (liberal studies, New York U.) examine the music, performance, and cultural impact of significant female artists based in the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as North American and European female artists who have been influenced by Caribbean musical forms. The contributions are thematically unified by their consideration of the intersection of gender, race, culture, and diasporization, as seen in the context of the region's history of conquest, colonialism, and slavery.
