This course contextualizes various types of music making around the world. Drawing on inter-disciplinary texts from ethnomusicology, musicology, anthropology, history, and cultural studies, we will explore an array of music genres not only as artistic forms but also as social practices situated in societal, political, cultural, and economic contexts. We will not only discuss important theoretical, conceptual, and philosophical issues— such as Non-Western music philosophies and theory, musical cultural identity, social activism, and liberation struggles––but we will also examine the ways people are empowered by musicking to deliver extra-musical messages, and the ways people employ sonic worlds as social spaces for individual or collective action, protest, and expression.
