Analytical and Cross-Cultural Studies in World Music

Edited by Michael Tenzer and John Roeder

  • Brings together the fields of music composition, ethnomusicology and music theory
  • Focuses on world music genres as music and offers deeper analysis than that generally available
  • Includes innovative chapters focusing on the explicit comparison of music across cultures
  • Perfect for college music theory or history classes that want to introduce world music in a technical, analytical way
  • Includes Western and non-Western musics together-a border-erasing perspective
  • Promotes the integration of ethnomusicology into the core mission of training students as musicians
