- 'Africa In Stereo' examines the role that African American music has played in the pan-Africanist imagination since the end of the 19th century. Throughout, Jaji marshals a wide array of critical, archival, literary, visual, and sonic sources to craft an argument centered on the stereophonic echoes between three sites on the African continent emblematic of pan-Africanism (Ghana, Senegal, and South Africa) and black musical cultures in the US (as well as few other placeson the diasporic landscape).
