The VOcal and Verbal Arts BIBLIOGRAPHY aims at establishing oral poetic tradition as a unique art form. We are compiling references to diverse works that ground our scholarship in long-standing academic pursuits. Presenting five main academic orientations that inform the ongoing, continued inquiries and theories relating to vocal and verbal art performance, we hope to make vocal and verbal art scholarship more accessible and systematized for researchers, students, and community language speakers.
