In the tradition of African musicologists who have pioneered serious scholarly study of African music, notably J.H. Kwabena Nketia, this extended essay considers the subject of aesthetic value in African music, in particular, in the Ewe and Akan (Ghanaian) traditions. It examines African ? as compared with Western ? ideas about musical experience and its appeal; and music in relation to values, morality and human emotion.
