dc.description.abstractThis dissertation is a formal study of musical bow revivals in South Africa, based on an assessment of the instruments' historical and current usage, and functions. This study is also the inevitable result of my responses to certain musical experiences during the past three years, and which generated in me a personal commitment to the practice of African cultural music, which I 'discovered' through studies with Dizu Plaatjies and other African music specialists, who also speak through this study. My growing interest drew me to musical bows, which have become my principal instruments for musical compositions, and also personal expression. The primary focus of the dissertation is current bow practice in the Eastern and Western Cape, and certain areas in KwaZulu Natal, and personal interaction with people who became my main informants and teachers.en_ZA
