520    Fiddling has had a lengthy history in Africa which has 
       long been ignored.                Jacqueline Cogdell 
       DjeDje corrects this oversight with an expansive study on 
       fiddling in the Fulbe, Hausa, and Dagbamba cultures of 
       West Africa. DjeDje not only                explains the 
       history of the instrument itself, but also discusses the 
       processes of                stylistic transference and 
       adaptation, suggesting how these may have contributed to  
       differing performance practices. Additionally, DjeDje 
       delves into the music, the                performance 
       context, the musicians behind the fiddle, the meaning of 
       the instrument,                and its use in these three 
       cultures. This detailed work helps the reader understand  
       and appreciate three little-known musical cultures in West
       Africa and the fiddle's                influence upon them
