Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The purpose of this book is to survey the basic kinds of music and musical instruments found in the major oriental civilizations and in the island cultures of the Eastern Hemisphere. It is also intended as an introduction to the basic attitudes, techniques, and nomenclature of the discipline of ethnomusicology. Presents a romanization of the book of vocal examples along with a translation or explanation of their meaning. A sonic glossary index at the end of each chapter shows all non-western terms in alphabetical order including a unique prononciation audio cassette. The inclusion of human figures in all new drawings add information about playing positions as well as instrument designs. Contains a unique cassette of pronunciations by noted and qualified speakers.

Book News Annotation:

For students and informed amateurs, introduces not only the principles and practices of Oriental civilizations and island cultures of the Eastern Hemisphere, but also the basic methods and vocabulary of ethnomusicology. Individual cultures are examined within regional chapters, which include drawings of instruments, examples in western tablature, bibliographical and audiovisual notes and a sonic glossary. First published in 1967 and again in 1977.
