Andrew L. Kaye is an ethnomusicologist with research specialization in sub-Saharan Africa, Brazil, and ethnoanalytical approaches to the cinematic soundtrack. A longtime collaborator with pioneering folk music specialist Alan Lomax, Kaye co-edited the "Southern Journey", a series of 13 compact discs based on material originally recorded by Lomax in the American South in 1959 and 1960. Kaye's article, "The guitar in Africa" appears in the Garland Encyclopedia of World Music, Volume 1: Africa (New York, Garland, 1998). His history of contemporary African music forms the second part of the book Musica dell'Africa Nera: Civiltà subsahariane fra tradizione e modernità, co-authored with Leonardo D'Amico (Palermo, L'epos, 2004). Professor Kaye currently teaches courses in world music and film at Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania. He has taught courses on music and cinema at the University of Iceland and the Universidad de Buenos Aires. In 1998, he taught a course on African music at the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco em Recife.
