  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: Aloha kākou! For more than a century now, the trope of ethnomusicology has been "the study of music in its cultural context," a phrase that has also been a convenient rejoinder for the inevitable inquiry at cocktail parties: "Oh, ethnic [sic] musicology! What is that'" The focus on the culture (which often defaults to a national culture) as the defining entity is almost canonical, as I recall in such titles as The Music and Musical Instruments of Japan (1893), The Music of Hindostan (1914), Music in the Philippines … (1975), The Music of the Arabs (2003), and Korean Pop Music: Riding the Wave (2006) that span a century. Overarching efforts including Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart (1949), The Garland ... Read More

  • Listening to Arab Women's Voices: Society for Asian Music 2018 Keynote
           Address
    • Abstract: Although I did not set out explicitly to do so, I have spent decades of my life—as have some of you—listening to Arab women's voices, as singers and musicians and as women in the communities in which I have lived. I would like to speak a little about these voices here. When first planning this talk, I thought I would walk us through the work that many members of the Society for Asian Music and others have produced on Arab women's voices over the years. But I quickly realized how impossible that would be—there has been just too much output to consider all of it. So, I will rely on that with which I am most familiar—historical work on women in the early years of Islam, singers at the turn of the twentieth century in ... Read More

  • Man Yar Pyae U Tin and the Burmese Slide Guitar: Constructing and
           Deconstructing Narratives of Cultural Exchange
    • Abstract: This article analyzes Burma's rich history of musical development by focusing on the shifting economies of arts patronage that brought foreign instruments into a traditional Burmese music context. I focus on the slide guitar, which accomplished a transition from a foreign to a local instrument during the twentieth century. This transition was a witness to and a participant in the British colonial period, the independence movement, the crafting of a uniquely modern Burmese cultural identity, and the dramatic political shift into the socialist system of the 1960s and 1970s. By using the slide guitar as a lens through which to view cultural change within the performing arts, I aim to question the symbolic, functional ... Read More

  • Knowledge Transmission in Javanese Karawitan: Is It Time for an
           Ontological Turn'
    • Abstract: Javanese gamelan music has been the subject of a number of studies for a few generations of ethnomusicologists interested in the changing patterns that "modernity" brought about in the transmission of music knowledge. With a substantial literature in the archives and a relatively accessible ethnographic terrain, gamelan music provides a fertile ground for diachronic analysis and speculations. The advent of modernity and the technologies and discourses it has entailed has frequently been singled out as a major turning point in this history. The introduction of music notation on the one hand and the formation of academic institutions on the other have often been described as the vehicles through which the modern ... Read More

           Memory by Burcu Yıldız (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a study of musicking—the significant activity that happens around Armenian-language musical activity in twenty-first-century Istanbul. Much of this musicking is part of a project to maintain a collective memory—and indeed, as Yıldız notes, many nonacademic research participants were involved with kinds of musicological or historiographical labor. Although nominally about a specific ethnically defined community (Istanbul Armenians), Yıldız's intent is not to produce a "monolithic, ethnicity-based, homogeneous identity for Turkey's Armenian community" (12) but rather to emphasize its heterogeneity. This primarily ethnographic and multisited project, drawing on US cultural anthropological and ... Read More

  • Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll by John Pirozzi
           and LinDa Saphan (review)
    • Abstract: Because Cambodia's recent history—the loss of over two million people to mindless savagery—is so fraught with grief and horror, any attempt to write an essay putting this particular collection of music into perspective demands far more knowledge of not just history but also music than any individual can claim. That includes me. Consequently, this essay will necessarily fall short in some ways, but it represents my best effort to offer perspectives on music that must evoke far more emotions in any Khmer who survived the holocaust than it ever could in me. To do this, I call on my own experience of being drafted into the US Army in 1968 and sent to Vietnam for one year in 1969 as well as of trying and failing to ... Read More

  • Resilient Music at the Margins, Vols 1–3 by José S. Buenconsejo
           (review)
    • Abstract: Three documentary films offer valuable insight into the intimate lives of several indigenous cultural communities in Southern Mindanao, Palawan, and the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines and make important contributions to our understanding of the richness, depth, and diversity of Philippine cultures. Songs, instrumental music, dance, and ritual convey deeply personal, social, and spiritual sentiments. This series will not only educate but also cultivate sympathy and empathy for the grace, beauty—and resilience—of rarely seen cultures and individuals against the prevalence of tourist representations and increasing marginalization in their traditional homelands. Although each film focuses on a specific area of the ... Read More

  • Writing the History of "Ottoman Music." ed. by Martin Greve (review)
    • Abstract: This interesting volume comprises fifteen articles that were originally presented at a confe.rence in 2011 that was held jointly by the Turkish Music Conservatory of Istanbul Technical University and the Orient-Institut Istanbul. The book brings forward the matter of writing the history of "Ottoman music," although only one part is specifically devoted to the subject. An introduction by the editor is followed by four parts dealing respectively with historiography, periodization, folk music, and reconstruction, and these sections primarily feature renowned authors considering various aspects of Ottoman/Turkish music. The volume ends with a common bibliography and information on the contributors.That the term ... Read More

  • Kyoku. Performed by Mieko Miyazaki & Suizan Lagrost by Aldo Tollini
           and Mieko Miyazaki (review)
    • Abstract: As musical tastes change over the years, it has become rarer to find a traditional hōgaku repertoire included on contemporary recordings ("traditional" here generally means works from the Edo period [1603–1867]). If asked why, performers say that today's listeners (and, truth be told, some of the performers themselves) don't like the heavy classics, because they are, well, heavy. That repertoire has gradually been supplanted by contemporary genres (fusion, new age, avant-garde, and so on) and, as koto and shakuhachi have spread outside Japan, by covers of well-known Western classics, pop, rock, and other styles. (YouTube provides samples of Bach, Debussy, Lady Gaga, Deep Purple, Taylor Swift, and various Nintendo ... Read More

  • The Music of Central Asia ed. by Theodore Levin, Saida Daukeyeva, and
           Elmira Köchümkulova (review)
    • Abstract: This volume by Levin, Daukeyeva, and Köchümkulova is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Central Asian music. The volume is a collection of chapters from 27 authors, including local scholars, and thus a significant amount of material appears here for the first time in the English language. The Music of Central Asia is an incredible accomplishment. It provides a wealth of perspectives and is remarkably comprehensive in its coverage of the region. The book defines Central Asia broadly, including Afghanistan, Mongolia, Western China, and parts of Siberia, along with former Soviet republics Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Although it pays significant attention ... Read More

  • Hmong Songs of Memory: Traditional Secular and Sacred Hmong Music; Essays,
           Images, and Film by Victoria Vorreiter (review)
    • Abstract: Encountering either of Victoria Vorreiter's books, Hmong Songs of Memory: Traditional Secular and Sacred Hmong Music or Songs of Memory: Traditional Music of the Golden Triangle (Resonance Press, 2009), in a Bangkok bookstore, one cannot help but become engrossed in her artistic design as well as her books' amazing array of eye-catching color photos, all printed and bound by a high-end company in Hong Kong. Vorreiter, however, is not just a gifted artist who produces her own photographs, audio recordings, video recordings, and design but also a skilled ethnologist with extensive musical training and a penchant for detail. The result is an unusual combination of solid ethnography and artistic presentation.Although ... Read More
