Product Description


"Music and Globalization productively contributes to over two decades of scholarship in the anthropology of music and in ethnomusicology... It is a rich collection and deserves attention from specialists and nonspecialists alike; it will be useful in both graduate and undergraduate curriculums across multiple disciplines (anthropology, ethnomusicology, critical music studies, and media studies)." —American Ethnologist

"Music and Globalization is a responsible interdisciplinary endeavor characterized by the presentation of serious engagements with music and complex ethnography. Most of the authors address critical issues proposed by postcolonial/subaltern theory and critical political economy with notable courage." —Research in African Literatures

"[O]ne of the great strengths of this collection is its ambiguous location of a music often situated rather schematically in a given historical and cultural matrix. Recognition of the political ambiguities makes a welcome shift from some of the more strident positions that have been taken up in public and even scholarly discourse surrounding World Music.... The value of this collection extends far beyond World Music." —Journal of World Popular Music

"[C]ontains many valuable case studies of musical encounters demonstrating the ways music-making both structures and yet provides space for human agency." —Music & Letters

"'Music and Globalization' includes stimulating contributions, such as Barbara Browning’s discussion of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and Gilberto Gil in relation to metaphoric and literal forms of 'infectiousness'; Richard Shain’s examination of Laba Sosseh’s project of Cubanising African popular music; and Daniel Noveck’s pondering of beliefs mediated through the place of the violin in the lives of Ramámuri people in southern Chihuahua." —Julian Cowley, The Wire
