African Music Resources at Boston College Libraries

This guide provides an introduction to some of the resources on African music available at the Boston College Libraries and some tips on how to use them. 

One way to begin your research is to use a music encyclopedia to get an overview of the music in the African country you are researching.  The articles in the encyclopedias will include references to related scholarly articles.  One good book or article will often lead you to others. Scholarly publications have bibliographies or footnotes.
