Ethnomusicology and Modern Music History

Designed as a tribute to world-renowned ethnomusicologist Bruno Nettl, this volume explores the ways in which ethnomusicologists are contributing to the larger task of investigating music history. The fifteen contributors explore topics ranging from meetings with the Suyá Indians of Brazil to the German-speaking Jewish community of Israel; from Indian music in Felicity, Trinidad, to Ravi Shankar's role as cultural mediator.

"This book is unique not only for its approach but also for the scope of its content. . . . It is definitely a must for libraries of research centers and institutions with ethnomusicology programs."
