This book brings insights to begin a new examination of the human musical experience. The world of music is rich with artifacts that make us want to know the correlations of these artifacts and the human socio-cultural milieu. In this text, Dr. Akombo has defined and re-examined both music and dance from a global perspective. He has endeavored to portray music and dance as a composite whole by considering them inherent in every culture. While in some cultures music means sound and body movement, in others, dance means body movement and sound. This book surveys music and dance around the world and tries to put dance and music back to the context in which they were first created by humans: as a composite whole to coexist and compliment each other in an attempt to complete the human sphere. The book presents and shows the connection of the two units of music and dance as complimenting each other and also that the human experience of music and dance is timeless.
