Music of the African Diaspora

Video Title
Music of the African Diaspora
Description
In the past three decades, the USA has seen an influx of over one million African immigrants. Like Africans from earlier diasporas and like immigrants from elsewhere, they have brought their artistic skills, values, knowledge, and experience and created dynamic, often powerful new cultural forms that give definition to their communities in the USA. Highlights from the African Immigrant Program at the 1997 Smithsonian Folklife Festival illustrate the musical diversity and richness of the new African diaspora in the USA.
