Synopses & Reviews
Designed as a tribute to world-renowned ethnomusicologist Bruno Nettl,
this volume explores the ways in which ethnomusicologists are contributing
to the larger task of investigating music history. The fifteen contributors
explore topics ranging from meetings with the Suy Indians of Brazil
to the German-speaking Jewish community of Israel; from Indian music in
Felicity, Trinidad, to Ravi Shankar's role as cultural mediator.
"This book is unique not only for its approach but also for the
scope of its content. . . . It is definitely a must for libraries of research
centers and institutions with ethnomusicology programs."
Includes bibliographical references (p. -305) and index.
