David Locke received his Ph.D. in ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University in 1978, studying with David McAllester, Mark Slobin, and Gen'ichi Tsuge. At Wesleyan, he studied traditional African music under Abraham Adzinyah and Freeman Donkor. From 1975 to 1977, he conducted doctoral dissertation fieldwork in Ghana under the supervision of Professor J.H.K. Nketia. In Ghana, his teachers and research associates included Godwin Agbeli, Midawo Gideon Foli Alorwoyie, and Abubakari Lunna. He has published numerous books and articles on African music and regularly performs the repertories of music and dance about which he writes. He teaches at Tufts University where he serves as the director of the master's degree program in ethnomusicology and as a faculty advisor in the Tufts-in-Ghana Foreign Study Program. His current projects include an oral history and musical documentation of dance-drumming of the Dagbamba people and an in-depth musical documentation of Agbadza, an idiom of Ewe music, in collaboration with Professor Gideon Foli Alorwoyie. He is active in the Society for Ethnomusicology and has served as the president of its Northeast Chapter.

David P. McAllester received his Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University, where he studied with George Herzog. A student of American Indian music since 1938, he undertook fieldwork among the Comanches, Hopis, Apaches, Navajos, Penobscots and Passamaquoddies. He was the author of such classic works in ethnomusicology as PEYOTE MUSIC, ENEMY WAY MUSIC, MYTH OF THE GREAT STAR CHANT and NAVAJO BLESSINGWAY SINGER (with co-author Charlotte Frisbie). He was one of the founders of the Society for Ethnomusicology, and he served as its president and the editor of its journal, ETHNOMUSICOLOGY. Professor Emeritus of Anthropology and Music at Wesleyan University, he passed away in 2006.
