Annual Meeting of the Society for Ethnomusicology

  • David McAllester


We had three days of very interesting meetings and there were several papers that I note would be of interest to Africanists: Some Speculations on a Drum Chime Tradition in Buganda, by Klaus Wachsmann; Musical Instruments of Madagascar, by Norma McLeod; Ubakala Dance: A Special Festival, by Judith Lynne Hanna; The Musical Instruments of Equatoria, Sudan, by Roxanne McCollester. One afternoon was spent in an interesting symposium: Music, Dance and Anthropology: Ten Years of Co-operation, and we paid visits to two notable collections of musical instruments, The Stearns Collection at the University of Michigan and the Freeman Collection, a private one, in Detroit.
