- The Black Banjo Then and Now
Since banjo is a New World version of multiple African antecedents, it is a multi-ethnic African instrument. Therefore, playing styles, be they stroke, rappin', thumb-lead, up-pickin', Murphy Gribble-type three-finger rolls, or whatever, must be considered part of the African tradition. Hence, mention of the "African influences" in banjo playing and history starts from a false supposition that the thing ain't All-African to begin with. -Sule Greg Wilson
