Special Commendation for Professor Díaz’s Book
British Forum for Ethnomusicology

British Forum for Ethnomusicology (BFE) recognizes outstanding scholarship in ethnomusicology written in English. BFE has given a Special Commendation to Professor Juan Diego Díaz for his book Africanness in Action: Essentialism and Musical Imaginations of Africa in Brazil (Oxford UP, 2021) in its 2022 book prize competition. The book focuses on “tropes of Africanness” in self-identification and musical expression in the northeastern state of Bahia in Brazil. The judges praised Africanness in Action: “this is a beautifully written and profoundly impressive work which offers a critically reflexive and nuanced postcolonial representation of African music in the Black diaspora.”
