This anthology concerns traditional music and archives, and discusses their relationship as seen from historical and epistemological perspectives. Music recordings on wax cylinders, 78 records or magnetic tape, made in the first half of the 20th century, are regarded today as valuable sources for understanding musical processes in their social dimension and as unique cultural heritage. Most of these historical sound recordings are preserved in sound archives, now increasingly accessible in digital formats. Written by renowned experts, the articles here focus on archives, individual and collective memory, and heritage as today's recreation of the past. Contributors discuss the role of historical sources of traditional music in contemporary research based on examples from music cultures in West Africa, Scandinavia, Turkey, and Portugal, among others. The book will appeal to musicologists and cultural anthropologists, as well as historians and sociologists, and will be of interest to anyone concerned with sound archives, libraries, universities and cultural institutions dedicated to traditional music.

Ethnomusicology is an academic discipline with a very broad mandate: to understand why and how human beings are musical through the study of music in all its geographical and historical diversity. Ethnomusicological scholarship, however, has been remiss in articulating such goals, methods, and theories. A renowned figure in the field, Timothy Rice is one of the few scholars to regularly address this problem. In this volume, he offers a compilation of essays drawn from across his career that finds implicit and yet largely unrecognized patterns unifying ethnomusicology over its recent history. Modeling Ethnomusicology summarizes thirty years of thinking about the field of ethnomusicology as Rice frames and reframes the content of eight of his most important essays from their original context in relation to the environment of today's ethnomusicology. Rice proposes a variety of models meant to guide students and researchers in their study of ethnomusicology. Some of these models pull together disparate strands of the field, while others propose heuristic models that generate questions for researchers as they plan and conduct their research. A new introduction to these essays reviews the history of his writing about ethnomusicology and proposes an innovative model for theorizing in ethnomusicology by ethnomusicologists. This book will be an enduring, essential text in undergraduate and graduate ethnomusicology classrooms, as well as a must-buy for established scholars in the field.

Music and Social Dynamics in Nigeria explores the diverse ways in which music reflects, and is shaped by, historical and social dynamics of life in Nigeria. Contributors to this volume include some of the leading scholars of Nigerian music, such as Joshua Uzoigwe, Laz Ekwueme, Tunji Vidal, Richard C. Okafor, A. K. Achinivu, Ademola Adegbite, Femi Faseun, and Christian Onyeji. Focusing on ancient and new musical traditions, including modern African art music, and drawing on the methods of ethnography and music analysis, the various chapters of the book discuss the role of music in community life, enculturation and education, political institutions, historical processes, belief systems, and social hierarchies. Conceived primarily for students and scholars of African music, this book will also be of immense value to the general reader.

"Os tamboreiros da Ilha das Montanhas apresenta ao leitor uma pincelada breve, ou poderemos dizer, um toque na superfície de uma das maiores e mais intensas manifestações culturais do arquipélago: o Colá Son Jon de Porto Novo. Neste livro, o autor leva-nos numa viagem, na qual navegamos entre os locais e os momentos da festa que acontece todos os anos durante o mês de junho, na cidade de Porto Novo. Para além de uma análise sobre a música dos tambores, na qual dialoga com etnomusicólogos que estudaram as rítmicas africanas, com especial destaque para o etnomusicólogo ganense Willie Anku, o etnomusicólogo nativo, também acompanha de perto as transformações profundas que esta festa tem atravessado nos últimos tempos."--Back cover.

The study of listening-aurality - and its relation to writing is the subject of this eclectic edited volume. Theorizing Sound Writing explores the relationship between sound, theory, language, and inscription. This volume contains an impressive lineup of scholars from anthropology, ethnomusicology, musicology, performance, and sound studies. The contributors write about sound in their ongoing work, while also making an intervention into the ethics of academic knowledge, one in which listening is the first step not only in translating sound into words but also compassionate scholarship.

"Comment les musiques et les récits sonores accompagnent-ils la formation des mémoires collectives ? Quelles places occupent-ils au sein de sociétés et de régimes d'historicité pluriels, et comment sont-ils susceptibles d'y faire archive ? Quelles fonctions jouent alors l'ethnologue, l'ethnomusicologue, l'historien ou le sociologue dans la production et l'utilisation de ces sources ? Les contributions de cet ouvrage explorent ces questionnements, en décrivant la constitution de fonds d'archives, les méthodes de recueil de documents musicaux sur le terrain, et leur usage pour la connaissance des mémoires. À partir d'études de cas ciblées, l'ouvrage interroge la façon dont les acteurs contribuent à la formation, à la circulation et à l'usage de fragments de mémoire voyageant par-delà les lieux et les époques. Il part d'études situées en dehors des territoires précédemment balisés par l'ethnomusicologie de l'Europe et de la France, pour mettre en lumière, dans des aires géographiques différentes, les relations existant entre archives et musiques."--Page 4 of cover.

In Following the Elephant, Bruno Nettl edits articles drawn from fifty years of the pioneering journal Ethnomusicology. The roster of acclaimed scholars hail from across generations, using other works in the collection as launching points for dialogues on the history and accomplishments of the field. Nettl divides the collection into three sections. In the first, authors survey ethnomusicology from perspectives that include thoughts on defining and conceptualizing the field and its concepts. The second section offers milestones in the literature that critique major works. The authors look at what separates ethnomusicology from other forms of music research and discuss foundational issues. The final section presents scholars considering ethnomusicology--including recent trends--from the perspective of specific, but abiding, strands of thought. Contributors: Charlotte J. Frisbie, Mieczylaw Kolinski, Gerhard Kubik, George List, Alan P. Merriam, Bruno Nettl, David Pruett, Adelaida Reyes, Timothy Rice, Jesse D. Ruskin, Kay Kaufman Shelemay, Gabriel Solis, Jeff Todd Titon, J. Lawrence Witzleben, and Deborah Wong.
