Notes from Africa traces the rise of popular music on the continent ?beginning in the 1980s when the term 'world music' was coined as a marketing label and African musicians, notably Youssou N'Dour and his contemporaries, began to appear on the international stage.

This book explains the musical styles that developed from the 1960s, when many African countries gained their independence. It covers developments in music and society in Senegal, in West Africa and around the continent during the post-independence years and right up to the present day. Jenny Cathcart, drawing on her personal experience in Senegal and her work alongside Youssou N'Dour, offers stories and portraits of daily life in Africa. The results are fresh insights into contemporary culture, religion and politics ?as well as future collaborations and developments not only on the continent but in the African diaspora too.
