This course is an introductory survey to selected musical cultures of the world: Africa, China, India, Indonesia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Alongside the theory, instrumentation, and aesthetics of music making, we will study the social, political, and economic contexts of music. Our approach is ethnomusicological and interdisciplinary. We pay attention to music within the total environment in which it takes place. Issues we will consider include tradition, transformation, diaspora, modernity, and globalization. Lectures and discussions will employ both indigenous and western musicological terms.

Course Requirements:

Coursework will include listening, reading, and discussion. Grading will be based on an autobiography, a concert review, and three quizzes.

Intended Audience:

This class is open to all students. No musical experience is required.
