Description

These twenty-one animal tales from the Colombian Caribbean coast represent a sampling of the traditional stories that are told during all-night funerary wakes. The tales are told in the semi-sacred space of the patio (backyard) of homes as part of the funerary ritual that includes other aesthetic and expressive practices such as jokes, song games, board games, and prayer. In this volume these stories are situated within their performance contexts and represent a highly ritualized corpus of oral knowledge that for centuries has been preserved and cultivated by African-descendant populations in the Americas.

Ethnomusicologist George List collected these tales throughout his decades-long fieldwork amongst the rural costeños, a chiefly African-descendent population, in the mid-20th century and, with the help of a research team, transcribed and translated them into English before his death in 2008. In this volume, John Holmes McDowell and Juan Sebastián Rojas E. have worked to bring this previously unpublished manuscript to light, providing commentary on the transcriptions and translations, additional cultural context through a new introduction, and further typological and cultural analysis by Hasan M. El-Shamy. Supplementing the transcribed and translated texts are links to the original Spanish recordings of the stories, allowing readers to follow along and experience the traditional telling of the tales for themselves.

Animal Tales from the Caribbean
Editors Introductory Essay
Juan Sebasti n Rojas E. and John Holmes McDowell
G EORGE L IST (1911-2008) was something of a renaissance man-composer, musician, scholar, writer, archivist, and teacher. During the course of a long and adventurous life, he received appreciation and respect for his endeavors in all of these fields. His work as a scholar of traditional music took him to the Southwest of the United States, to Ecuador, and to Colombia, where he conducted ethnographic fieldwork with rural coste os , as the chiefly African-descendent population residing along the Caribbean coast call themselves. 1 He also documented traditional songs in the state of Indiana, where he served as director of the Archives of Traditional Music at Indiana University in Bloomington from 1954 until his retirement in 1976. List is credited with helping to develop the Ethnomusicology Program at Indiana University and establishing the Archives of Traditional Music as a major holding of recorded sound.
List made four trips to the Colombian Caribbean coast to do fieldwork for what was the major research project of his career: the study of traditional music in peasant communities in Atlantic coastal Colombia. 2 There, he visited some fifteen towns and cities in search of musicians and storytellers who could contribute material for his research. 3 List focused mostly on the Bol var Grande region, and there he concentrated his attention on a village called Evitar (part of Mahates municipality), where he found a great variety of musical expressions. 4 His fieldwork entailed making extensive audio recordings of performances, in natural settings and in arranged ones, and conducting interviews with the performers and others in the community. He was of the school that placed emphasis on the transcription and analysis of musical sound, on music as text, and made good use of these materials to describe and analyze features of musical sound, art, and structure. Elements that became more central to ethnomusicological fieldwork in subsequent years, such as social relationships, symbolic interaction, and performance contexts (see Nettl 2005, 74-91; Cooley and Barz 2008), were not prominent in List s day, yet, as an alert field researcher, he was not inattentive to them.
