One of the music entries submitted to our 1973 competition particularly interested the judges. It was a series of songs derived from the traditional folksongs of Afikpo, Nigeria. There have already been laments at our inability to provide for our readers the attractive musical items, as we can do with writers, or with artists whose work can be photographed. In this case we asked a student of ethnomusicology, Gary Weltz, to analyze and describe this song sequence. Perhaps these formal lines will give some impression of these delightful works. Joshua Uzoigwe sent us a tape of a performance of these songs arranged for piano and voice. Anyone eager to hear this entertainment may purchase a duplicate tape (See p. 92).
