Performing ethnomusicology : teaching and representation in world music ensembles  cloth ~ pbk.

edited by Ted Solís

"Performing Ethnomusicology" is the first book to deal exclusively with creating, teaching, and contextualizing academic world music performing ensembles. Considering the formidable theoretical, ethical, and practical issues that confront ethnomusicologists who direct such ensembles, the sixteen essays in this volume discuss problems of public performance and the pragmatics of pedagogy and learning processes. Their perspectives, drawing upon expertise in Caribbean steelband, Indian, Balinese, Javanese, Philippine, Mexican, Central and West African, Japanese, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Jewish klezmer ensembles, provide a uniquely informed and many-faceted view of this complicated and rapidly changing landscape. The authors examine the creative and pedagogical negotiations involved in intergenerational and intercultural transmission and explore topics such as reflexivity, representation, hegemony, and aesthetically determined interaction. "Performing Ethnomusicology" affords sophisticated insights into the structuring of ethnomusicologists' careers and methodologies. This book offers an unprecedented rich history and contemporary examination of academic world music performance in the West, especially in the United States. '"Performing Ethnomusicology" is an important book not only within the field of ethnomusicology itself, but for scholars in all disciplines engaged in aspects of performance - historical musicology, anthropology, folklore, and cultural studies. The individual articles offer a provocative and disparate array of threads and themes, which Solis skillfully weaves together in his introductory essay. A book of great importance and long overdue' - R. Anderson Sutton, author of "Calling Back the Spirit". The contributors include: Gage Averill, Kelly Gross, David Harnish, Mantle Hood, David W. Hughes, Michelle Kisliuk, David Locke, Scott Marcus, Hankus Netsky, Ali Jihad Racy, Anne K. Rasmussen, Ted Solis, Hardja Susilo, Sumarsam, Ricardo D. Trimillos, Roger Vetter, and J. Lawrence Witzleben.
