With its irresistible dance beat, strong bass line, and straightforward harmonies and lyrics, zouk has become wildly popular in the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. This book—complete with a compact disc and numerous illustrations and musical examples—provides a thorough introduction to the sound, lyrics, choreography, and social milieu of this vibrant and infectious new music. "This invigorating reference work and companion CD of the Antilles' sexy zouk dance sound will lift readers out of their easy chairs and their complacency about the nonreggae aspects of Caribbean pop. . . . [Zouk] is a landmark achievement."—Timothy White, Billboard

Marie Alonzo Snyder (modern dancer, choreographer, educator and scholar), presents a clear and helpful introduction and guide for anyone interested in learning about Zouk-the fast growing partner dance-in her debut book, The Art and Sensuality of Brazilian Zouk Dancing. Marie (a professional dancer for over three decades) has been dancing Zouk for the past 5 years and recently brought this beautiful, sensual dance to the Big Island of Hawai'i. "I arrived in Kona, Hawai'i on November 17, 2014 leaving behind a life of over 33 years on the East Coast. Like many others, I was called to this beautiful island," says Marie. "By the second week of my arrival, I began filling the island with Zouk. What began with one eager, Zouk goddess in training, has now become a heaven of gods and goddesses all enjoying the passionate music, the sensual movements, and the delicious connection that Zouk offers." This is a friendly book that people will enjoy reading even if you are not a dancer. Those already familiar with Zouk as well as those just learning will find value in this photograph filled book. Marie's passion is evident and her voice can be heard as you read. It's as if you are in the studio with an expert teacher, conveying her knowledge with deep devotion and expressiveness. Her voice shines through, inspiring the reader, making you want to learn more or start taking a class.

The inaugural volume in African Diaspora Press's Black Music Reference Series, From Vodou to Zouk is a landmark bibliography documenting vernacular music traditions of the French- and Creole-speaking Caribbean. Its nearly 1300 entries cover all of the French-speaking islands, in particular Haiti, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana, as well as their overseas enclaves in France, the United States and Canada. Most works are in English, French, and Spanish, with the bulk having been published between the 1930s and 2008. Of particular note is the strong representation of sources from the Caribbean and France not found anywhere else. A scholarly foreword by ethnomusicologist Julian Gerstin helps to contextualize the history of the region and its vibrant musical legacy.
