Summary
In the mid-20th century, African musicians took up Cuban music as their own. They claimed it as a marker of black Atlantic connections and of cosmopolitanism untethered from European colonial relations. Today, Cuban/African bands popular in Africa in the 1960s and '70s have moved into the world music scene in Europe and North America, and world music producers and musicians have created new West African-Latin American collaborations expressly for this market niche. This book follows two of these bands, Orchestra Baobab and AfroCubism, and the industry and audiences that surround them - from musicians' homes in West Africa, to performances in Europe and North America, to record label offices in London. This book examines the transnational experiences of musicians, industry personnel, and audiences as they produce, circulate, and consume music in a post-colonial era of globalization
