Negro Folk Music of Africa and America

The 24 selections included in the 1951 compilation “Negro Folk Music of Africa and America” provide a sample of musical styles from Africa, and the African diaspora in South America, the Caribbean, and the Southern United States. This anthology demonstrates the continuation of African musical traditions into The New World. According to producer Harold Courlander, “in some parts of the Americas it is possible to find old African songs and dances that are still known in almost identical form in local African communities.” The album includes songs such as “Ingane Kamalume” from South Africa, “‘Jesha Cult Song” from Brazil, and “Didn’t You Hear My Lord When He Called?” from Alabama, USA. In addition, a 6-page booklet of liner notes by Harold Courlander features a brief description of African music and its influence in other regions and detailed song descriptions.
