"This is a marvellous book, full of meticulous, inspired yet concise close-readings. A fine addition to the new diaspora studies, tracing ties between Africa and its US and French diasporas, Higginson beautifully parses music's complex place within aesthetics, revealing the centrality of race to this branch of philosophy. Such interdisciplinary work will be a game-changer." Tsitsi Jaji, Professor of English and African and African American Studies, Duke University
