Folk Songs Hawaii Sings: A Collection of Songs from Polynesia and Asia for Piano and Voice

John M. Kelly

Folk Songs Hawaii Sings: A Collection of Songs from Polynesia and Asia for Piano and Voice by John M. KellyFolk Songs Hawaii Sings is a sparkling compilation of melodies from the islands of Polynesia together with a variety of folk songs that countless Oriental people have brought with them to their new home in the Hawaiian Islands. In one sense it is a musical picture of the renowned harmonious blend of people who reside in Hawaii today; in another, it is a colorful record of ties with the Eastern world and ancestral heritage in line with the same American tradition that saw songs of the soil and the sea brought to the United States from Europe in an earlier age.

Nagauta: The Heart of Kabuki Music

William P. Malm

Nagauta: The Heart of Kabuki Music by William P. MalmTHE KABUKI theater of Japan has achieved a growing reputation as one of the world's most brilliant achievements in the field of theater. And the number of studies made on the subject in the West has been considerable. Yet, in spite of the fact that so much of the unique brilliance of the kabuki stage depends on the character of its music, the manner in which it is used, and its integral connection with the development of the dramatic impact of the plays, very little has been written on this phase of the genre. As the author points out, "Writers on kabuki recognize the fact that the spectacular...

"Venceremos": Victor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement

Gabriel San Roman

"Venceremos": Victor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement by Gabriel San Roman

When the socialist politician Salvador Allende dramatically won Chile's presidential election in 1970, a powerful cultural movement accompanied him to power as folk singers emerged at the forefront proving that music could help forge the birth of a new society. "Venceremos" charts the development of such a cultural phenomenon from the years before Allende's victorious campaign to the brutal U.S.-backed military coup on September 11, 1973, which ousted his presidency and imposed the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. The bloody repression that followed would claim the life of Víctor Jara,...

The Melodic Tradition of Ireland

James R. Cowdery

The Melodic Tradition of Ireland by James R. CowderyThis is a major work, at once synthetic and analytical. The author has drawn on previous studies of Irish music and general melodic theory to describe the inner workings of a rich melodic tradition. Irish folk music, resting upon monophonic melodies which are varied and ornamented, and thus viewed from several perspectives; ethnographic and musical, insider and theoretical?to weave an integrated image of a still thriving genre. The concepts of tune family and melody type are starting points for the qualitative study of melodic change and tune relationships without recourse to simplified tune...

The Book of Klezmer: The History, the Music, the Folklore

Yale Strom

The Book of Klezmer: The History, the Music, the Folklore by Yale StromKlezmer is Yiddish music, the music of the Jews of Europe and America, a music of laughter and tears, of weddings and festivals, of dancing and prayer. Born in the Middle Ages, it came of age in the shtetl (the Eastern European Jewish country town), where "a wedding without klezmer is worse than a funeral without tears." Most of the European klezmorim (klezmer players) were murdered in the Holocaust; in the last 25 years, however, klezmer has been reborn, with dozens of groups, often mixing klezmer with jazz or rock, gaining large followings throughout the world.

The Book of Klezmer traces the...

Men and Popular Music in Algeria: The Social Significance of Rai

Marc Schade-Poulsen

Men and Popular Music in Algeria: The Social Significance of Rai by Marc Schade-PoulsenRaï music is often called the voice of the voiceless in Algeria, a society currently swept by tragic conflict. Raï is the voice of Algerian men, young men caught between generations and classes, in political strife, and in economic inequality. In a ground-breaking study, anthropologist Marc Schade-Poulsen uses this popular music genre as a lens through which he views Algerian society, particularly male society. He situates raï within Algerian family life, moral codes, and broader power relations. Schade-Poulsen did his research in the 1990s, in clubs, recording studios, at weddings,...

The Mexican American Orquesta: Music, Culture, and the Dialectic of Conflict

Manuel Peña

The Mexican American Orquesta: Music, Culture, and the Dialectic of Conflict by Manuel PeñaThe Mexican American orquesta is neither a Mexican nor an American music. Relying on both the Mexican orquesta and the American dance band for repertorial and stylistic cues, it forges a synthesis of the two. The ensemble emerges historically as a powerful artistic vehicle for the expression of what Manuel Peña calls the "dialectic of conflict." Grounded in ethnic and class conflict, this dialectic compels the orquesta and its upwardly mobile advocates to waver between acculturation and ethnic resistance. The musical result: a complex mesh of cultural elements-Mexican and American, working-...

To Tatau Waka

Mervyn McLean

To Tatau Waka by Mervyn McLeanThis account of an ethnomusicologist's experience conducting fieldwork offers a glimpse into the life of New Zealand's Maori people through his documentation of traditional songs. The audio recordings included span 1958 through 1979, a time when many of the culture's traditions were fading. Sensitive writing and attention to the challenges of anthropological fieldwork shed light on postcolonialism in New Zealand and its effects on Maori and Polynesian cultures and the continuance of traditional music.

Noted hymnologist I-to Loh has gathered and assembled his studies and experiences and that of many, many colleagues relating to the history and practice of hymnody of a part of our world comprising many cultures and countries, not to mention spiritual influences. Few resources, especially accessible to Western readers, have delved into the Christian sacred music of Asia; those that have tend to give only minimal examples, attempt to somehow combine all of Asia under a...

Cuban Counterpoints: The Legacy of Fernando Ortiz

Cuban Counterpoints: The Legacy of Fernando Ortiz by Mauricio A. FontWhile Fernando Ortiz's contribution to our understanding of Cuba and Latin America more generally has been widely recognized since the 1940s, recently there has been renewed interest in this scholar and activist who made lasting contributions to a staggering array of fields. For the first time in English, this volume of essays demonstrates his impact on a staggering array of fields. Much of his most challenging and provocative thinking-which embraced simultaneity, conflict, inherent contradiction, and hybridity-has remarkable relevance for current debates about Latin America's complex and evolving...
