Product Description

Kpegisu is one of the oldest living oral traditions of West Africa, and is deeply expressive in its use of allegory and metaphor. Kpegisu, formerly a dance for those going off to war, is now performed on special occasions. Included in this book is textual analysis of song texts, melodic analysis of song melodies, and rhythmic analysis of drummed patterns. No other study of an African genre is as wholistic in its approach.
