World Music: A Global Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second edition of World Music: A Global Journey introduces students to the diversity of musical expression around the world. It takes the reader across the globe to experience cultural traditions that challenge the ear, the mind, and the spirit. It presents a systematic study of varied traditions in a non-technical language accessible to any enthusiast of world music and culture. The second edition continues with its geographical orientation to each locale, and visits each of the seventy musical sites with a three-fold listening review that begins with an experiential first impression of the music. This is followed by an aural analysis of the musical organization and a closer look at the interesting instruments that create the exotic sounds heard. Finally, the authors consider the cultural connections that give the music its meaning. The second edition of World Music enhances its pedagogical efforts with Listening Guides, an enhanced website, and improved interior design. With nearly 300 photos of instruments and cultural settings, over two hours of music on the accompanying audio CDs, and online resources, World Music: A Global Journey provides a fundamental resource for teachers, students, researchers, musicians, and any enthusiast beginning their exploration of world music and culture.

Book News Annotation:

Miller and Shahriari (ethnomusicology, Kent State U.) present a world music text for survey courses that introduces students to traditions by region and focuses on the music while including cultural context. Each section gives a broad overview of the continent or sub-continent then discusses specific sites within the area and their corresponding music. Many maps and illustrations are included, as are listening guides and two audio CDs containing musical examples. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
