Cultural Identity in British Musical Theatre, 1...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the performance of 'Britishness' on the musical stage. Covering a tumultuous period in British history, it offers a fresh look at the vitality and centrality of the musical stage, as a global phenomenon in late-Victorian popular culture and beyond. Through a re-examination of over fifty archival play-scripts, the book comprises seven interconnected stories told in two parts. Part One focuses on domestic and personal identities of 'Britishness', and how implicit anxieties and contradictions of nationhood, class and gender were staged as part of the popular cultural condition. Broadening in scope, Part Two offers a revisionary reading of Empire and Otherness on the musical stage, and concludes with a consideration of the Great War and the interwar period, as musical theatre performed a nostalgia for a particular kind of 'Britishness', reflecting the anxieties of a nation in decline.

Songs in the past were performed during storytelling sessions among the Luo of Kenya.Mainly elderly women past menapouse told these stories and story- songs. The story-songs were narrated and sang by the children in the evenings in the siwindhe (grandmother's hut). Storytelling sessions also took place in the duol where young men were told stories by elderly men. The traditional setting of storytelling is now almost extinct and the story- songs have now been moderated to their contemporary forms. In as much as these changes have taken place, analytical studies on Luo story-songs have not been given prominence. This book therefore analyzes Luo story-songs with regard to the musical and socio-cultural aspects in their indigenous and contemporary settings. The book is intended to be a relevant teaching resource for music teachers especially at primary school level and a source of information for researchers in socio-cultural studies. It is also intended to educate our youth about the components of their culture of stories and story-songs for the sake of continuity and at the same time give insights on the Luo and their cultures.

Semionauts of Tradition
76,52 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores questions of identity, cultural change and creativity from the perspective of contemporary musicians currently engaged in redefining Asian musical traditions and notions of heritage in Singapore. Drawing on the fields of anthropology, cultural studies, and ethnomusicology, Semionauts of Tradition focuses on emerging millennial musicians and explores the complex and interwoven cultural, national, musical, and personal identifications in their discourse and music practice. It shows how they create fluid, hybrid and counter-hegemonic forms of expression, representation and identity through their navigation of diverse cultural worlds, their incorporation of a myriad of elements into their own identities and music, and their contestations of preconceived notions of difference and tradition. The book exposes paradoxes within current thinking about 'multiracialism', 'racial harmony', the 'East/West divide' and 'tradition versus modernity,' and proposes new ways of understanding identity, cultural change and creativity in a highly globalised, and diverse nation. This highly-original polyvocal account of a burgeoning music scene includes photos, musical scores and reaction pieces by musicians. It is a timely contribution to global discussions about 'multiculturalism from below,' as well as musical, cultural and national identities in a postcolonial Southeast Asian setting, from the viewpoint of artists engaged in creative meaning-making."This captivating book explores - with tremendous intellectual vitality - the dialectic relationships between the cultural, ethnic and national identities of Singapore's creative youth, and their creative practice. A compelling read!"Dr Liora Bresler, Professor, University of Illinois"A well-researched and thoughtfully well-written book about the diverse forms of music in Singapore and the musicians who created it."- Jeremy Monteiro, jazz pianist, singer, composer, and music educator"This wonderfully lucid and compelling book analyzes the musical and cultural creativity of young Singaporean musicians growing up in a multicultural and ethnically plural society, bringing Asian and Western musical cultures into creative dialogue."- Dr Deborah Pacini Hernandez, Professor Emeritus, Tufts University"A thought provoking dialogue on contemporary Singaporean music!"-Eric Watson, composer, conductor, music technologist and pedagogue

Informed by her in-depth ethnomusical knowledge, the result of detailed fieldwork, Mans's book is about musical worlds and how we as people inhabit them. The book asserts that an understanding of our musical worlds can be a transformative educational tool that could have a significant role to play in multicultural music and arts education. She explores the way in which musical expression, with its myriad cultural variations, reveals much about identity and cultural norms, and shows how particular musical sounds are aesthetically related to these norms. The author goes further to suggest that similar systems can be detected across cultures, while each world remains colored by a distinctive soundscape.Mans also looks at the way each cultural soundscape is a symbolic manifestation of a society's collective cognition, sorting musical behavior and sounds into clusters and patterns that fulfill each society's requirements. She probes the fact that in today's globalized and mobile world, as people move from one society to another, cross-cultural acts and hybrids result in a number of new aesthetics.Finally, in addition to three personal narratives by musicians from different continents, the author has invited scholars from diverse specializations and locations to comment on different sections of the book, opening up a critical dialogue with voices from different parts of the globe. Musical categorization, identity, values, aesthetic evaluation, creativity, curriculum, assessment and teacher education are some of the issues tackled in this manner.

Issues of identity have always been central to the American musical in all its guises. Who appears in musicals, who or what they are meant to represent, and how, over time, those representations have been understood and interpreted, provide the very basis for our engagement with the genre. In this third volume of the reissued Oxford Handbook of the American Musical, chapters focus on race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, regional vs. national identity, andthe cultural and class significance of the musical itself. As important as the question of who appears in musicals are the questions of who watches and listens to them, and of how specific cultures of reception attend differently to the musical. Chapters thus address cultural codes inherent to the genre, inparticular those found in traditional school theater programs.
