Music and Minorities from Around the World: Research, Documentation and Interdisciplinary Study (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. The acceleration of mobility among the world s peoples, the growth of populations resettling in places other than their homelands, and world events that have propelled these developments have brought minorities unprecedented attention. Their significance as subjects for study has grown correspondingly and the study of their music has become an important gateway into understanding the culture of minorities. The Study Group for Music and Minorities, part of the International Council for Traditional Music, has seen a steady increase in membership since its inception in 1998 - evidence of the growing interest in minorities worldwide. The Group meets every two years in different parts of the world, and every meeting has resulted in a published volume of papers presented at the meeting. As has been the case in previous volumes where the interests of the host country are well-represented, the current volume attends to Jewish themes, with the meeting from which the volume derives having taken place in Israel. Geographically, the book s subjects and authors come from four continents, emphasizing the global scope of music and minorities. The methodological approaches used in this volume range from musical analysis in the educational context to the cultural studies approach. In both subject matter and perspective, therefore, this book represents the broad range of modern ethnomusicology today. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9781443866200
