Abstract
Biographical/Historical Note:
Born in Ghana to Nigerian parents, composer Fred Onovwerosuoke grew up in both countries and was eventually naturalized in the United States. He has traveled in more than thirty African countries doing field work and analyzing some of Africa’s abundant music traditions. He has also traveled extensively in the American Deep South, the Caribbean and South America for comparative research in what he likes to call "traceable musical Africanisms." He maintains an active schedule as conductor, lecturer, cross-cultural educator, and composer-in-residence.

Scope and Content Note:
Scores in these and other archival collections may be searched by composer, title of work, instrumentation and more through the CBMR database: http://cbmr.cuadra.com/star/cbmrstar.html.
