Publisher's Summary:
This is the first complete music reference for the region. This volume covers all the nations of modern Southeast Asia: Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. It presents an overview of the region's music, focuses on prominent themes and discusses fundamental questions facing researchers, including the impact of armed conflict, mass media and technology. The current state of musical scholarship in the region is examined and the music traditions of each country and ethnic group are documented, including the first-ever comprehensive treatment of minority mountain tribes and the eastern Indonesian islands.
