Publisher Comments:

Global Pop offers a fascinating and timely survey of popular music and its impact on contemporary culture along with our ways of looking at and living in the world.

Synopsis:

From Tibetan Buddhist and Native American influences to Jamaican dancehall, rap, and bhangra of Apache Indian, this work examines the rise of "world music" and "world beat." It draws on a wide variety of sources, from popular culture, interviews, liner notes, the Internet and the music itself.

Synopsis:

From the Tibetan Buddhist and Native American influences in the music of Pauline Oliveros to the arresting blend of Jamaican dancehall, rap, and bhangra of Apache Indians, this groundbreaking work examines the rise of world music and world beat. Musicologist Timothy D. Taylor draws on a wide variety of sources, from popular culture, interviews, liner notes, the Internet and the music itself, charting an accessible path through the issues surrounding contemporary world music. Included in this volume are detailed discussions of such world musicians as the Kronos Quartet, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Youssou N'Dour, Peter Gabriel, Johnny Clegg, Angelique Kidjo, Sheila Chandra, Apache Indian, Zap Mama and a host of others.

Exploring the dynamics behind such collaborations as Paul Simon and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Taylor addresses the effects that these collaborations have on the music itself with particular emphasis on issues of authenticity and the expectations around it. In addition to looking at the ways western pop/rock appropriates the music from other cultures, he also demonstrates how these cross-cultural collaborations bring music and musicians from other cultures to a much wider audience as well as fashion new musics and identities through their innovative combinations of sounds and styles.

Global Pop offers a fascinating and timely survey of popular music and its impact on contemporary culture along with our ways of looking at and living in the world.

Synopsis:

Global Pop examines the rise of "world musics" and "world beat," and some of the musicians associated with these new genres such as Peter Gabriel, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Johnny Clegg. Drawing on a wide range of sources - academic, popular, cyber, interviews, and the music itself - Global Pop charts an accessible path through many of the issues and contradictions surrounding the contemporary movement of people and musics worldwide. Global Pop examines the range of discourses employed in and around world music, demonstrating how the central concept of authenticity is wielded by musicians, fans, and other listeners, and looks at some of these musics in detail, examining ways they are caught up in forms of domination and resistance. The book also explores how some cross-cultural collaborations may fashion new musics and identities through innovative combinations of sounds and styles.

Description:

Includes discography (p. [233]-235), filmography (p. 236), bibliographical references (p. 242-258), and index.
