From advertising to zydeco, this volume provides a guide to scholarly literature on the popular music of the world. It covers non-biographical aspects of the field, including genres, the industry, social and cultural contexts, musical practices, geographical locations and theory and method.
First published in 1987. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
Borrowing from such sources as archival recordings and news stories, A Hunger Called Music documents the early history of African-American music beginning with work songs and ending with Motown-era soul. Using each genre's historical context and the music itself as inspiration, the poems in the chapbook take on a range of voices and stories from Robert Johnson to Nina Simone, and from a white 1950s record producer to a witness to police brutality. In doing so, the poems work to unearth the commonalities of experience between previous eras and the current one through the intergenerational constant of music.
