A fascinating study of Senegalese masters of the sabar drum

“Tang’s ethnography is lucid and engaging… [Her] study is particularly significant for examining the performance of sabar beyond its indigenous social and aesthetic frames…. Masters of the Sabar represents a significant contribution in this direction.”
