The Dynamics of Music and Culture in Traditional Ibibio Society of Nigeria
This paper examines the degree of inter-relationship between music and culture with a view to establishing that there can be no thought of culture particularly in a typical African community without reference to music. The paper focuses on the extent to which musical recreation is an integral aspect of the life style of the traditional Ibibio. The analysis also considers the way social relations and social institutions are integral to the music. It concludes by stating that since the cultural landscape in Africa as a whole is experiencing serious erosion due to modernity, we should wake up and preserve our heritage for generations yet unborn.
