    EMERGING TRENDS IN NIGERIAN ART MUSIC COMPOSITION AND PERFORMANCE by Oghenemudiakevwe Igbi (ed.)

    7,000.00
    Nigeria brims with an array of art musicians who have endeavoured to create and perform art music using traditional compositional nuances and performance practices. In a clime where other musical styles seem to thrive more than art music, Nigerian composers are always on the lookout for fresh ideas and techniques in their creative endeavours, in pursuance of sundry objectives. As a dynamic art, music composition and performance continue to evolve and offer themselves to an extensive range of creative dimensions. Hence, it becomes imperative to be acquainted with such emerging trends, in furtherance of the course for the actualisation of an authentic Nigerian art music identity.
    The book is a compendium of twenty-one articles by eminent Nigerian music scholars. Divided into three sections, the book is not only targeted at illuminating the minds of its readers, but is also a scholarly literature that interrogates and unearths some of the emerging developments in the field of music. The chapters contained herein dwell on a variety of issues in the art from different viewpoints of art music composition, composers, art music performance or practices, African music, popular music and music education.

    Landscapes, Sources and Intellectual Projects of the West African Past offers a comprehensive assessment of new directions in the historiography of West Africa. With twenty-four chapters by leading researchers in the study of West African history and cultures, the volume examines the main trends in multiple fields including the critical interpretation of Arabic sources; new archaeological surveys of trans-Saharan trade; the discovery of sources in Latin America relating to pan-Atlantic histories; and the continuing analysis of oral histories. The volume is dedicated to Paulo Fernando de Moraes Farias, whose work inspired the intellectual reorientations discussed in its chapters and stands as the clearest formulation of the book’s central focus on the relationship between political conjunctures and the production of sources.

    SPIRITUALITY AND TERTIARY EDUCATION IN WEST AFRICA (2022) by Sr. Mary Eriken

    2,000.00

    Spirituality and Tertiary Education in West Africa highlights the question of choice and great need in human life in a very resourceful manner…Sr. Dr. Mary attempts an eclectic approach to debate on the subject matter in the fallen and falling standard of education – more touchingly in Sierra Leone, which forms the yardstick to African countries, especially English-speaking countries in West Africa. The efforts of governments, religious organizations and non-governmental organizations are seemly not enough to raise the status quo of our young people who are wallowing in the dark side of spirituality and education… This great work of art can be appropriate for our university administrations, teachers, parents and students to help them rethink ways to redress the issues of inadequate educational systems in West African institutions.” Sr. Elizabeth Ngozi Okpalaeme, Students’ Coordinator and Quality Assurance Psycho-spiritual Institute, Marist International University College, The Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Karen, Kenya
