This CFP is to announce that submissions for V10, n3 - 2017 of ILAM's peer reviewed, accredited journal, AFRICAN MUSIC, are currently being accepted. Contributions may include topics on a wide variety of research areas, including the recovery, recording, analysis, and archiving of African music, with the object of establishing a theory of music making in Africa, as well as accounts of the historical, social, cultural, and aesthetic values of African music. Please send abstracts of around 150 words along with submissions of articles from primary research on African music and diasporic styles with their roots in Africa to the Editor, Lee Watkins at l.watkins@ru.ac.za as WORD documents. Place illustrations where you wish them to appear in print, with captions beneath each illustration (transcription/photo, etc). Use footnotes, not endnotes and standard in-text author-date citations. Author Guidelines are available for download from the ILAM homepage www.ru.ac.za/ilam. Consult these Guidelines carefully for style requirements for section headings, the References list, illustrations, and follow the Guidelines in preparing your article. Please contact me if you have any questions or require further information. The final deadline for submissions is March 31, 2017. Submissions of book, film, DVD and website reviews are also welcome.

It is my pleasure to announce that V10 n2 - the 2016 issue of AFRICAN MUSIC is in print and available from ILAM by contacting ilamsales@ru.ac.za or going to the ILAM homepage: www.ilam.ru.ac.za where there is a link to the contents page and a subscription form beneath the thumb print of the cover. This issue, as all back issues since 2007, includes a DVD of audio recordings and video clips provided by authors to illustrate the music discussed in their articles. Please urge your University's library/music library to subscribe to AFRICAN MUSIC if it does not already do so. Subscriptions and individual purchases, in print or electronic format, of the 2017 issue and all back issues since the journal's inception in 1954, are available from ILAM. Contact ilamsales@ru.ac.za to place your orders. AFRICAN MUSIC is also available OPEN ACCESS (with a two-year embargo) on Rhodes University’s Journal platform at: http://journal.ru.ac.za/index.php/africanmusic/issue/archive.
