East and West, North and South, Frisco to Perim. . . So we used to sing in a drawing-room ballad whose context certainly had nothing to do with African music. Yet the universality suggested by the points of the compass has a bearing on that music, which becomes ever more cogent as research penetrates more and more of the great continent.
