The quest for diversity in Western art music has led to the influx of ‘Westernized’ African music into the choral canon, albeit tagged as ‘world music’. This approach to the inclusion of diverse repertoire has led to the homogenization of indigenous
African folk tunes by non-indigenous composers, thus creating Western-sounding African music.

In this episode, we cover more than just the “how to.” We discuss issues of diversity and access, and the possibility that many popular approaches to these ideals are counterproductive. We also discuss the peculiar and reductive ways that we in the Western World discuss diversity while using extremely reductive terms like broad skin color categories, and continents of origin etc. After all, if we use reductive terms like “African” music, we are missing out on most of the beautiful diversity that the vast continent of Africa has to offer.

Ebuka suggests a helpful, easy to remember framework he calls the “3 Re-s.” Resource-Research-Resolve. We discuss the mistakes many directors make along this continuum as it applies to the Music of Sub-Saharan African musical traditions as well as music of any culture that is not our own.
