New in Con Reference -- From Vodou to Zouk: A Bibliographic Guide
From Vodou to Zouk, the inaugural volume in African Diaspora Press's Black Music Reference Series, is a landmark work documenting vernacular music traditions of the French- and Creole-speaking Caribbean. Its nearly 1300 entries cover all of the French-speaking islands, in particular Haiti, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana, as well as their overseas enclaves in France, the United States and Canada. Idioms covered range from the liturgical music of Haitian Vodou to folk and popular dance musics such as kalenda, bélé, compas, zouk, ragga, and more.
