Biographical note

Andrew J. Eisenberg is assistant professor of music at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD). Prior to arriving at NYUAD, he held teaching positions at Northwestern University, Stony Brook University, and Bard College. A musical ethnographer and sound culture researcher specializing in urban Africa and the Indian Ocean world, Eisenberg received his PhD in ethnomusicology from Columbia University in 2009, and carried out postdoctoral research between 2010 and 2013 as a participant in the European Research Council's "Music, Digitization, Mediation" project led by Professor Georgina Born at Oxford University.

Much of Andrew Eisenberg's published and forthcoming scholarship focuses on issues of voice, place, and identity on Kenya's "Swahili coast." In recent years, he has also been carrying out ethnographic research on the music recording industry in the Kenyan capital Nairobi.

Scope and contents note

The Andrew Eisenberg collection of East African commercial sound recordings contains sound files and associated metadata for hundreds of commercial sound recordings produced for East African audiences, and in particular, African and Arab audiences of the Swahili Coast, between the late 1920s and the first decade of the twenty-first century.

Dr. Andrew J. Eisenberg collected these materials in Mombasa, Kenya, between 2004 and 2006, with the assistance of local collector Jamal Hafidh Jahadhmy.

Most of the recordings in the collection fall within the realm of Swahili-language urban popular music. There are also examples of rural music traditions, colonial-era martial music, recited Swahili poetry, and Swahili comedy sketches.

The collection is comprised of three series:

Series 1: Digital audio captured from 78 r.p.m. records. The source recordings belong to a private collector in Mombasa, Kenya, who wishes to remain anonymous.

Series 2: Digital audio captured from audio cassette recordings of 78- and 45-r.p.m. records. These cassettes belong to Jamal Hafidh Jahadhmy, who created them by carefully transferring the audio recordings from records held in private collections in Mombasa, Kenya.

Series 3: Digital audio transferred from commercially produced audiocassette recordings acquired by Eisenberg in Mombasa between 2004 and 2006.
