Women and Music in Cross-Cultural Perspective


"This book is already a landmark: it has stimulated new inquiries and discussions at home and abroad and has encouraged ethnomusicologists to consider seriously the impact of gender on musicmaking, music makers, and our studies of both. Timely, thought-provoking, and highly readable, this volume takes the much-needed first step in providing data on music, women, and culture from a number of world areas."--Charlotte J. Frisbie, editor of Explorations in Ethnomusicology: Essays in Honor of David P. McAllester and author of Navajo Medicine Bundles or Jish: Acquisition, Transmission, and Disposition in the Past and Present

"The book is a valuable stimulus to ethnomusicologists to consider the centrality of gender issues for locating how society is 'in' music and music is 'in' society."--American Anthropologist

"An excellent set of essays in a new and important area of comparative musicology; for academic and general readers."--Choice


Ellen Koskoff is associate professor of musicology at the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester.
