Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Students around the globe have learned about the diversity of musical expression from World Music: A Global Journey, now in its third edition. Ethnomusicologists Terry E. Miller and Andrew Shahriari present a systematic study of a wide variety of world music in a textbook that is accessible to both music majors and non-majors. Known for its breadth and strong pedagogical framework, this popular textbook accompanies the reader on a voyage around the world to experience native and contemporary traditions that challenge the ear, the mind, and the spirit.

The textbook begins with three introductory chapters that discuss the elements of music, and then presents ten chapters on specific geographical areas. As one would prepare for any travel, each chapter begins with background preparation, reviewing the historical, cultural, and musical overview of the region. Visits to multiple sites within a region provide in-depth studies of varied musical traditions. Analysis begins with an experiential first impression of the music, followed by an aural analysis of the musical sound, and then a closer look at the prominent musical elements. Finally, the authors consider the cultural connections that give the music its meaning and life, and encourages students to explore on their own.Features
