This paper deals with Caryl Phillips, a contemporary British author of Caribbean descent, whose work, both fiction and non-fiction, testifies to his interest in music, both thematically and formally: countless references to music can be found in the titles of his books, in scenes involving musical performances, in the use in the narrative of musical terminology, but also in intriguing structural analogies with musical forms. My proposal is to analyse the influence of music in Phillips’s novel Crossing the River (1993; London: Vintage), which has been described as his most jazzy text. Very much like jazz -- which is for the Barbadian poet Edward Kamau Brathwaite “a cry from the heart of the hurt man”-- Phillips’ writing gives a voice to the victims of history, to shattered individuals in pain whose tragic fate is viewed at once as personal and collective. The novel not only illustrates the thematic overlaps between his narrative and the issues addressed in the lyrics of the African American musical tradition, such as discrimination and family disruption, but also exemplifies the author’s formal musical influence through the recurrent and creative use of meaningful variations in rhythm and of repetitions, which are again focal constituents of jazz. Throughout the novel, especially in the sections framing the narrative, the continual modulation of purposeful words such as “listen”, the variation of rhythm through punctuation and stressed/unstressed syllables, the reiterated elements, create a sonic pattern that goes over and over in the readers’ mind. My contention is that Phillips’ musical language crucially contributes to the emotional impact of his lyrical prose, which generates in the readers mixed feelings of sympathy and disorientation and prevents them from forgetting the characters’ stories which resonate long after closing the book.

This paper deals with Dancing in the Dark (London: Vintage, 2005), a novel by Caryl Phillips, a contemporary British author of Caribbean descent. This narrative is devoted to the Caribbean American entertainer Bert Williams (1874–1922), who is currently part of a MoMA’s exhibition since some unedited footage has been recently discovered. Like most of Phillips’s literary production, Dancing in the Dark is shaped by music, both thematically and formally: countless references to music can be found in the narrative, in scenes involving musical performances but also in structural analogies with musical forms, for instance through the recurrent and creative use of repetitions and meaningful variations in rhythm. This pervasive musicality even goes on when the main character, Bert Williams, is shooting a silent movie, which may seem paradoxical. My contention however is that such musicality is not a mere background to the moving image, but partakes, as in the rest of the novel, of the emotional impact of Phillips’s lyrical prose. [less ▲]

This article seeks to examine the relevance of popular culture and music in particular in the context of post-migratory multicultural societies. More precisely, we aim to demonstrate how music and musicians contribute – in specific spatial and temporal settings – to the mobilization of some migrant origin populations. The article starts with a conceptual discussion on the role of music for ethnic and migrant groups and on the role of music and musicians in electoral campaigns. Subsequently, we review the case of the 2008 US presidential campaign to show the relevance of minority artists’ productions and the political use that can be made out of it in competitive electoral contexts such as that of the United States.

Les sources écrites de la fin de l’époque des shakkanakkus (19e siècle av. J.-C.) sont en grande majorité des bordereaux administratifs découverts sur le site de Mari (Tell Hariri, Syrie). Ces quelques 2000 documents nous renseignent sur divers aspects de l’administration palatiale à cette époque, et citent à plusieurs reprises des musiciens et musiciennes. Appartenant au personnel du palais, ces musicien(ne)s recevaient des rations alimentaires et divers biens dont certains relatifs à leur fonction. Par ailleurs, étant responsables de transactions administratives, ces individus participaient activement à la gestion des biens du palais. Enfin, à l’instar de militaires ou de scribes, des musiciens font fonction d’intermédiaires dans la livraison de biens précieux offerts à différentes personnes appartenant à des élites, en particulier des seigneurs tribaux amorrites.
