With its irresistible dance beat, strong bass line, and straightforward harmonies and lyrics, "zouk" has become wildly popular in the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. This book--complete with a compact disc and numerous illustrations and musical examples--provides a thorough introduction to the sound, lyrics, choreography, and social milieu of this vibrant and infectious new music.
"This invigorating reference work and companion CD of the Antilles' sexy "zouk" dance sound will lift readers out of their easy chairs "and" their complacency about the nonreggae aspects of Caribbean pop. . . . "Zouk"] is a landmark achievement."--Timothy White, "Billboard"
