A Survey of World Music

This course introduces students to selected musical cultures from around the world, exploring their stylistic features, organology, and cultural significance, along with the historical, social, political, and geographical factors that shaped them. It emphasizes approaching music from an ethnomusicological perspective--questioning how and why human beings are musical and how their musics relate to broader questions of identity, communication, and belief systems. Through exploration of these musics, students refine listening and critical skills related to music. Students are required to attend live world music performances.
