By carefully examining the revelation and reconstitution of masculinities and femininities within these expressions, Ntarangwi raises questions of critical importance to the study of gender and identity and convincingly argues that while gender may be an important means of forming social identities, it can also be used to analyze various social-cultural realities and practices of a people. It can also reshape conceptual categories and intellectual theories of everyday experiences.
Weaving a creative tapestry of contemporary life in an African urban community, this book brings together theoretical trends in anthropology, ethnomusicology, performance studies, and gender studies.
