About the Journal

Focused primarily on African music research, Muziki: Journal of Music Research in Africa welcomes scholarly articles and reviews of books, music, and recordings related to musical theory and practice of the African continent and beyond. We aim to provide a platform for established and emerging scholars in the fields of performance practice, ethnomusicology, and ‘traditional’ musicology as well as jazz and popular music studies encompassing diverse aspects of local, diasporic, and global research.

Muziki succeeded the long-established Ars Nova journal of the Musicology Department at the University of South Africa in 2004. The journal is accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training and employs a rigorous double-blind peer review process for all submissions.

The journal is co-published by Taylor & Francis and can be accessed from https://www.tandfonline.com/journals/muz
