Abstract and Keywords

This article has been commissioned as part of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Music Revival edited by Caroline Bithell and Juniper Hill. This chapter considers ways in which music is restored in the condition of political exodus and exile among South Africans living mostly in Europe and traveling elsewhere (1960s–1970s). Drawing on Said’s notion of being “out of place,” Livingston’s ideas about musical revivals, and Taylor’s theories on archives and repertories, this chapter extends ideas about musical revival by focusing on the use of human memory in the absence of a prior recorded archive of South African music.

Keywords: South African jazz, free jazz, apartheid, diaspora, exile, memory, revival, Chris McGregor, Blue Notes, Dollar Brand, Abdullah Ibrihim
