Kurzbeschreibung

30. Mai 2002 Very Short Introductions (Buch 65)
World Music draws readers into a remarkable range of historical encounters, in which music had the power to evoke the exotic and to give voice to the voiceless. In the course of the volume's eight chapters the reader witnesses music's involvement in the modern world, but also the individual moments and particular histories that are crucial to an understanding of music's diversity. This book is wide-ranging in its geographical scope, yet individual chapters provide in-depth treatments of selected music cultures and regional music histories. The book frequently zooms in on repertoires and musicians--such as Bob Marley, Dana International, Bartok, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan--and attempts to account for world music's growing presence and popularity at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

Pressestimmen

Philip Bohlman's superb study places world music squarely in history - and a lengthy history at that, reaching back to the Age of Discovery and even beyond. Richard Middleton, University of Newcastle upon Tyne

Synopsis

'World music' emerged as an invention of the West from encounters with other cultures. This book draws readers into a remarkable range of these historical encounters, in which music had the power to evoke the exotic and to give voice to the voiceless. In the course of the volume's eight chapters the reader witnesses music's involvement in the modern world, but also the individual moments and particular histories that are crucial to an understanding of music's diversity. World Music is wide-ranging in its geographical scope, yet individual chapters provide in-depth treatments of selected music cultures and regional music histories. The book frequently zooms in on repertoires and musicians - such as Bob Marley, Bartok, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - and attempts to account for world music's growing presence and popularity at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly Academic Approach 5. März 2003
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a very academic study of the phenomenon of world music. As such it provides interesting theories and also some important facts, but I doubt whether the average world music fan would derive much enjoyment from it. The author includes worldwide music from the folk, art and popular traditions and mentions that it can be sacred, secular or commercial. So far, so good, but with sentences like: "As we encounter world music, therefore, it is important to recognize the need to reckon with different epistemologies and ontologies if we are to understand what world music can mean in its virtually infinite varieties," I nearly fell of my chair laughing. In its defence, the book does include informative albeit short pieces on the 1932 Cairo Congress of Arab Music, the great Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum, Rai music, Leadbelly, Celtic music, the Eurovision Song Contest, Bob Marley, Manu Dibango from Cameroon and the musics of the various diasporas. Two maps are included: The Celtic Fringe in Europe and the Polka Belt in the USA plus there are illustrations, a bibliography, discography and an index. I picked up the book without properly checking the contents - it's great source material if you want to write a dissertation on music from different traditions, but not a text that reflects the rhythms of the rich variety of world music that is becoming more and more available to everybody in our current era of globalisation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Musical Globalism or Globalization? 22. Mai 2007
Von Hermon Farahi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Philip V. Bohlman is a professor of musicology and ethnomusicology at the University of Chicago, an institution reknowned for its foundational works in Anthropology and Ethnomusicology. Being the nature of interdisciplinary ethnomusicologgical research, the book covers areas of study including Musicology, Anthropology, Sociology, History, Political Science, Economics and Philosophy.

He begins by expressing the limitations inherant in approaching a global phenomenon with only 150, 4"x7" pages. The reader is consistently reminded of the authors initial disclaimer when reading two paragraphs into an intriguing topic, and finding that it ends there.

Nevertheless, Bohlman presents a myriad of ways of approaching and interpretating the global phenonemon known as "world" music. He focuses on topics including: the history of western musicology and ethnomusicology, music in tradition, music in nationalism, music in diaspora, music in mediation, and music in the era of globalization. He also provides the reader with a nice collection of further readings, references and listening suggestions in the bibliography, organized by chapter.

A constant theme for Bohlman is the notion of "encounter". He attributes that it is within the experience of the encounter that we attribute meaning to the music itself, and to the context in which it is experienced.

He also postulates that there is a concurrent tension in so far as the way we "encounter" world musics, being mediated by global capitalism and market forces. This can potentialy take a traditional music out of context, resulting in an extention of post-colonial cultural hegemony or "cultural imperialism made sonorous" (147). Conversly, it can provide a medium for identity formation, revival, and representation, while potentially bringing people together, fostering empathy and harmony. You make the choice!

Is it musical globalism?

-Is the current manifestation of world music a reflection of a global world, where cultural bridges are being reconciled?

or

Is it musical globalization?

-Is world music a reflection of an economically globalized world, mediated by market forces and economic manipulation?

This is a complex question that Bohlman poses, ever so succinctly, yet all too briefly.

Great introduction for the student, active musician or passive listener.

2.0 von 5 Sternen a fasinating topic turned boring 30. November 2012
Von delapedrera - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
it attempts to be a very short introduction to a fascinating topic,that of wrold music. however short, it is difficult to read, badly written, confusing in the scope of concepts, with a poor choice of examples. the author must be knowledgeable, but does not manage to convey good information.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Awful writing 9. September 2013
Von Kurt Yilmaz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
He may be knowledgeable of ethnomusicology, but he tends to beat around the bush for every point, and make a lot of simple ideas confusing.

Virtually any other world music book is better, the only reason why this is a best seller is because it is required for a few music classes (I have no idea why).

1.0 von 5 Sternen A piece of academic twaddle 20. März 2011
Von Paul Jackson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When I read a book entitled "World Music A Very Short Introduction" I'm hoping to get a book that will actually introduce me to world music. A book that will explain how musical instruments, scales, etc differ from one part of the world to another. A book that possibly goes very briefly into the history of music around the world, different ways in which it is interpreted in different cultures, etc.

When I buy any book in the generally superb "Very Short Introduction" series I expect to get lucid prose written for an intelligent person who is NOT an expert on the subject and is not an academic.

World Music is written by an academic for academics, primarily academics who embrace the whole Post Modernist approach. To quote the preface "World music is very much a construct of modernism which is to say the encounter with and interpretation of the world that was unleashed by the Age of Discovery, the Enlightenment ..."

Most of the preface talks about Globalization as a political and social force.

I could have lived with this if the prose itself was lucid. But it is exceedingly turgid and filled with jargon. I picked a random page and searched for the first prose that struck me as a good example of this. So the following is a long, long way from the worst
"The space between the West and its others has vexed enthnomusicology since its inception. Indeed, we might even go so far as to say the the field has developed by attempting to shape the types of encounter that occur within this space and thus define the space"
2.0 von 5 Sternen Don't buy this book 16. Juli 2014
Von Bruce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The author tries to show off by writing in an unnecessary wordy style, using long difficult to understand words which he often seems to have coined himself. This clouds the meaning instead of making it understandable to the layreader. What a pity as it could have been an important book to people who want to understand more about World Music and how it influences us all today.
