DeJaeghere, Joan. Educating entrepreneurial citizens: neoliberalism and youth livelihoods in Tanzania. Taylor & Francis, 2017.

Duke, Selwyn. Influential beats: the cultural impact of music. The New American, 9 January 2014.

Duke describes the relationship between music and culture, asserting that as music changes across generations, so does culture. At the same time, music affects culture in more ways than culture affects music. To support this assertion, the author argues that music can enhance catharsis, can be therapeutic, and can perform different functions in social contexts. As the research makes an attempt to explain how the Tanzanian culture has changed over the years Vis a Vis the changes in Bi Kidude’s music, the article is an essential and relevant resource for guidance in this area.

Ebeli, Eva A. Indigenous musical culture in Ghana: A contemporary perspective. The International Journal of Humanities and Social Studies 3, 7(2015): 463- 468.

The article discusses the cultural changes that have occurred in Ghana based on musical progression. By mentioning that similar changes have been observed throughout Africa, Ebeli describes three perspectives to considering the role played by music in cultural development.

Lunsqui, Alexandre.Music and Globalization: Diversity, Banalization and Culturalization. Filigrane. Musique, esthétique, sciences, société. [En ligne], Musique et globalisation, Numéros de la revue. 2012.

The article discusses the changes that occur in cultural practices and their outcomes in musical and other artistic practices. The authors opine that as cultures change due to globalization, music is also likely to change in terms of preference as people follow the globalized and changed cultures. A piece that is acceptable today may not be acceptable in future. As such, the paper is relevant as it gives a baseline for consideration of changes that have been reported based on the perceptions of the citizens’ preference for Bi Kidude’s songs.
