Who invents masks, and why? Such questions have rarely been asked, due to stereotypes of anonymous African artists locked into the reproduction of "traditional" models of representation. Rather than accept this view of African art as timeless and unchanging, Z. S. Strother spent nearly three years in Zaire studying Pende sculpture. Her research reveals the rich history and lively contemporary practice of Central Pende masquerade. She describes the intensive collaboration among sculptors and dancers that is crucial to inventing masks. Sculptors revealed that a central theme in their work is the representation of perceived differences between men and women. Far from being unchanging, Pende masquerades promote unceasing innovation within genres and invention of new genres. Inventing Masks demonstrates, through first hand accounts and lavish illustrations, how Central Pende masquerading is a contemporary art form fully responsive to twentieth-century experience. "Its presentation, its exceptionally lively style, the perfection of its illustrations make this a stunning book, perfectly fitting for the study of a performing art and its content is indeed seminal. . . . A breakthrough."—Jan Vansina, African Studies Review

The tremendous variety of music that was pressed to shellac discs on the continent of Africa is truly astonishing. Popular songs, topical songs, work songs, comic songs, songs of worship, ritual, dance and praise--the sheer range of musical styles resists any easy categorization, just as African geography itself resists boundaries. "Opika Pende: Africa at 78 rpm" is a four-disc collection featuring 100 tracks taken from rare 78 rpm recordings of African music--from 1909 to the mid-1960s--none of which have ever been issued on CD until now. Across these 100 tracks, traditional music stands side by side with popular music as traditional culture coexists with so-called modernity. Pan-African in scope and wildly diverse, "Opika Pende" is a testament to the deep riches found in early recorded music across the continent. In 2013, this set was nominated for Best Historical Album by the Grammy Awards.

Questo libro nasce da un’emozione. Da un amore che è esso stesso fonte di identità: l’identità di figlia, di donna, l’essenza stessa della femminilità. Nasce dal bisogno di credere che la madre è «per sempre» e allo stesso tempo dalla necessità di prepararsi a una perdita inevitabile. Ma non c’è niente di naturale nella morte di una madre, così come non c’è niente che possa prepararci a un momento tanto devastante. E così questo libro vuole essere un tentativo di incontro con il dolore che unisce tante donne ma che ognuna pensa sia solo il suo. «Le figlie senza madre sono una razza riconoscibile, nel bene e nel male, hanno un filo che le tiene attaccate una contro l’altra...» scrive l’autrice. Tante sono le storie di donne di ogni età che Stella Pende ha ascoltato, raccolto e raccontato nel tentativo di dare voce a tutte le donne senza madre e a quelle che, come lei, pur avendola ancora vivono già la paura della nostalgia.
