Produktbeskrivelse

Aissata G. Sidikou and Thomas A. Hale reveal the world of women's songs and singing in West Africa. This anthology-collected from 17 ethnic traditions across West Africa-introduces the power and beauty of the intimate expressions of African women. The songs, many translated here for the first time, reflect all stages of the life cycle and all walks of life. They entertain, give comfort and encouragement, and empower other women to face the challenges imposed on them by their families, men, and society. Women's Voices from West Africa opens a new window on women's changing roles in contemporary Africa.
