Buzz and Rumble: Global Pop Music and Utopian Impulse

Buzz and Rumble: Global Pop Music and Utopian Impulse This essay argues for the concept of a utopian impulse, a liberating power possible in music and dance. With a focus on African music, the essay argues against conventional Eurocentric world-music commodification and points instead to new music movements from Congo and from Angola that, engaging new forms of technology, do not require the practices of European curatorship. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Social Text Duke University Press

With a focus on African music, the essay argues against conventional Eurocentric world-music commodification and points instead to new music movements from Congo and from Angola that, engaging new forms of technology, do not require the practices of European curatorship.
