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

"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,...

Ko-Uta: Little Songs of the Geisha World

Ko-Uta: Little Songs of the Geisha World by Liza CrihfieldThis book of Japanese poetry and lyrics explores a little-known style of Japanese song called Ko-Uta.

A Ko-Uta is translated as "little song" in Japanese. Unfamiliar to most Westerners, ko-uta are particularly in tune with the tradition of Japan's Edo-era merchants. Some ko-uta are aesthetic, many are earthy.

Ko-uta are sung to the accompaniment of the shamisen—a traditional, three-stringed Japanese lute. Ko-uta come to life when they are sung, and the best example of where they live is in the geisha world. To help give some idea of the geisha world, this Japanese music book has provided a complete...

The Melodic Tradition of Ireland

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

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

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,...

Nagauta: The Heart of Kabuki Music

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...
