AMUSICON is an online peer-reviewed open-access journal.

Open access allows all interested readers to view, download and print any article or composition free of charge. AMUSICON provides a national and international publication platform for the music academic audience, as well as performing artists.

AMUSICON publishes studies on African music studies of any kind, as well as original music compositions by composers from the African continent. The music compositions are presented as PDF scores (supported by MP3’s where available).

We encourage submissions of unpublished original works by contemporary African music researchers and composers.


AMUSICON is aimed at an international audience and the language of the journal is English.
