Abstract

This paper proposes an ethnomusicological approach to Djibril Diop Mambéty’s films, as a means of reading their diverse musical soundscapes. Paying particular attention to Touki Bouki (1974), it demonstrates how, in this film, the approach delineates what may be seen as a reclamation of Josephine Baker - an international figure who has been objectified for her race and gender - resituating her within a wider global African cultural heritage.
