Absolutely wonderful book about the journey of an African-American composer to Africa "to find the heart of music." What he finds instead is a painful reality about the relationship between Black and White Africans, Europeans, and African-Americans. This book took me more than a year to read, not because it's dense or difficult, but because the clarity and poignance of the experiences is so strong as to be almost painful. Lewis' prose has an indescribable quality to it - it becomes a bit wordy at times, but every chapter closes and opens with descriptions so succinct and powerful that they stick in your mind long after you've shut the cover. Honestly, one of my favorite books of all time, and I believe, a majorly under-read classic. - By Lexa Liza, review on Amazon in 2009.
