  • Editor’s Note: Music Histories
    • Authors: Karush M.
      Pages: 205 - 205
      Abstract: Cultural and social histories of music are experiencing something of a boom these days. Inspired by the emergent fields of sound studies and transnational history, as well as by new histories of capitalism and globalization, scholars have begun to examine both the production and consumption of music in novel ways. This special section brings together seven excellent examples of this new scholarship. The articles cover a broad geographical and chronological range, leveraging histories of music to address an impressive array of topics, including race and gender, immigration, cultural and economic globalization, and technological development, as well as marketing and genre construction. What unites them, among other things, is the careful attention the authors pay to the complex relationship between music and the economic, social, and ideological structures within which it is created and used. James Millward traces the emergence and development of the sitar within the shifting, transimperial, and multicultural terrain of the “silk road.” Michael O’Malley illuminates the racialization of music in the United States through a look at the career of early jazz guitarist Eddie Lang. Pablo Palomino examines the trajectory of a much more obscure artist, whose career played out in Eastern Europe and Buenos Aires, to see what it reveals about the structure of twentieth-century musical globalization. Panagiota Anognostou analyzes the naming and renaming of Greek popular music, revealing the power of genre names to shape “social worlds.” Michael Schmidt’s close look at the 1951 reissue of Louis Armstrong’s early recordings demonstrates the ways LP technology and packaging transformed the meaning of the music. Christina Abreu examines the constraints of race and gender faced by Graciela, Celia Cruz, and La Lupe—the three most successful and influential Afro-Cuban women in Latin music—as well as their agency in the face of these constraints. Jason McGraw reveals how Caribbean migrants in Britain used and transformed Jamaica music in order to build communities in the face of endemic racism. Finally, David Suisman’s “Afterword” situates these diverse articles within the historiography of music and suggests some intriguing ways in which they are in dialogue with the field of sound studies.

  • The Silk Road and the Sitar: Finding Centuries of Sociocultural Exchange
           in the History of an Instrument
    • Authors: Millward J.
      Pages: 206 - 233
      Abstract: This article uses the history and development of the sitar and its music 1) to argue for the neglected importance to historical studies of music as a central aspect of human culture; 2) to provide a case study of cultural exchange across what is known as the “Silk Road” over time and geography; and 3) to demonstrate the qualitative equivalence of phenomena we associate with “the Silk Road” and with “globalization.” Lutes appear in Indian iconography from the first centuries CE, probably inspired by Buddhist art from North India and Central Asia. They then disappear, replaced in the same contexts by tube zithers. Lutes were reintroduced from the thirteenth century or before by regimes with Persian and Central Asian cultural background. The rawabs and tamburs thus imported developed in India and borrowed features and performance techniques from Indian zither-type instruments. The further elaboration of Indian lutes, including the sitar (as well as sarod, surbahar, bīn and others), paralleled the development of various forms of North Indian music, especially under the patronage of Mughal emperors and regional monarchs, including Wajid ‘Ali Shah of Awadh. The process was conscious and driven by individual musicians and lutiers but likewise strongly influenced by sociopolitical vicissitudes, including the decline of Mughal central power, British colonial encroachment and annexation of Awadh, and the rise of Calcutta as a global, commercial city. The sitar reflects this lineage of historical and personal interventions in its technical features, playing technique, musical style, and accompanying lore and literature.

  • Dark Enough as It Is: Eddie Lang and the Minstrel Cycle
    • Authors: O’Malley M.
      Pages: 234 - 259
      Abstract: Guitarist Eddie Lang used music to navigate the complexities of race and ethnicity in the 1920s. Like most musicians, he was caught in “the minstrel cycle,” which typically had three phases. It began with white Americans appropriating African American culture in order to ridicule it. In stage two, African American performers reappropriated minstrel stereotypes for their own uses. In stage three, minstrel stereotypes were re-imagined as forms of racial authenticity. This article revises the trajectory of jazz and blues by rooting it in the commercial play of the minstrel cycle, rather than in folk authenticity. It ends by comparing Lang to Charlie Christian, who found a way to escape the minstrel cycle altogether.

  • Nina Sibirtzeva, or the Hidden Half of Musical Globalization
    • Authors: Palomino P.

      Abstract: Actress and singer Nina Sibirtzeva (1899, Russia–1957, Buenos Aires) developed her inconspicuous career in the popular Jewish theater in Russia and Eastern Europe and moved to Buenos Aires in 1938, where she adapted her repertoire and from where she toured other cities in the Americas, always performing on circuits that were removed from mainstream entertainment. What can we make of her obscure journey' This article attempts to understand Sibirtzeva’s artistic choices and, through them, some structural but unexplored aspects of the globalization of popular music in the twentieth century. Based on evidence rescued from the almost destroyed archives of the IWO (Idisher Visnshaftlejer Institut or Yiddish Research Institute) in Buenos Aires, the article focuses on the meaning of the words popular and populism in music; the engagement of popular artists with musical technologies, markets, migration, and politics; and the conceptual and historiographical question of how to deal with biographies that do not match the cultural mainstream, operating instead at the intersection of different cultural streams.

  • Did You Say Rebetiko' Musical Categories, Their Transformation, and
           Their Meanings
    • Authors: Anagnostou P.
      Pages: 283 - 303
      Abstract: This article discusses the changes in denominations affecting Greek popular music Rebetiko during the twentieth century. It examines the terms “Smyrneïko” and “Pireotiko” Rebetiko and their meanings, following their formation, consolidation, and change through time. The accent is placed on the activity and results of categorization as a social process. Denominations’ displacements are detected through press articles. An analysis of the different terms used, the changes in musical creation, and venues completes the basic argument, that is musical categories mold social worlds.

  • The Louis Armstrong Story, Reissues, and the LP Record: Anchors of
           Significance
    • Authors: Schmidt M.
      Pages: 304 - 331
      Abstract: This article explores the social lives of two-dozen sound recordings made by Louis Armstrong between 1925 and 1931. Through this case study, it examines how the meaning of media content changes over time through varying forms of reproduction. It argues that the reissue of Armstrong’s Hot Five and Seven recordings in the early 1950s inserted them into new networks of meaning and practice and that the long-playing (LP) record itself played a major role in this transformation. The specific communication languages and material elements of the LP—from its images and design to its liner notes—provided crucial resources for a previously small group of music collectors to reform the definition of jazz for a quickly expanding audience in the 1950s. Finally, the article discusses and theorizes reissues, the reproduction and recirculation of older material in a new context and with novel packaging.

  • Más que una reina: Race, Gender, and the Musical Careers of Graciela,
           Celia, and La Lupe, 1950s–1970s
    • Authors: Abreu C.
      Pages: 332 - 352
      Abstract: Afro-Cuban women singers were not simply exotic sidepieces or gimmicky accessories accompanying the performances of the male singers and bandleaders dominating the Latin popular music landscape of the first three decades of the second half of the twentieth century. The personal life stories and professional careers of Graciela Pérez Grillo, Celia Cruz, and Lupe Victoria Yolí exemplify the various ways in which Cuban women of color crafted their musical identities and competed for audiences. This essay begins to reconstruct a more complete and thick history of Cuban and Latin popular music that allows Afro-Cuban women performers to speak not from the margins but from the center of the narrative as innovators, pioneers, and agents shaping the popular culture landscape on which they formed their professional careers. The stories told here reflect gender and racial solidarity and shared expressions of Afro-Cuban womanhood, but they also point to the realities of inclusion within the entertainment industry: compromise and competition, among each other and with the men in their lives.

  • Sonic Settlements: Jamaican Music, Dancing, and Black Migrant Communities
           in Postwar Britain
    • Authors: McGraw J.
      Pages: 353 - 382
      Abstract: Between the 1940s and 1970s, various genres of Jamaican music, from big band jazz and tropical sounds, to ska/blue beat, to reggae, provided a sonic dimension to the mass migration of Caribbean people to Britain. Alongside the quest for housing and work, Caribbean people, as well as native black British and other diasporic black populations, built leisure spaces, community life, and a new consumption-driven domesticity centered around music and dancing. Yet ideologies of race, gender, and sexuality inflected the production and consumption of dance music in deleterious ways. White hostility to black settlement and interracial sex, part of the rampant racial discrimination known as the color bar, constrained the possibilities for Jamaican music. In response, Caribbean people’s pursuit of public dancing and music-filled leisure in dance halls, town halls, and semiprivate house parties became an early test for racial integration in the UK. As Caribbean settlers embraced Jamaican music in postwar Britain, they also shaped the music industry back in Jamaica. While noting the importance of musicians and other cultural producers, the focus here is on the audiences who created the music culture, as well as their own experience of migration and settlement through music and dance.

  • Afterword: Music, Sound, History
    • Authors: Suisman D.
      Pages: 383 - 389
      Abstract: This afterword offers historiographical context for historical writing on music, stretching back to the pioneering work of Eugene Genovese and Lawrence Levine in the 1970s. For the articles in this special issue, it suggests Christopher Small’s concept of “musicking” as a useful way to think about music as social practice and proposes that these articles take on added power when read in relation to the recent scholarship on the history of the senses and especially of sound. Finally, it encourages historians’ expanded use of music as an interpretive tool.
