Music in Pacific Island Cultures

Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture

Brian Diettrich, Jane Freeman Moulin, and Michael Webb

Global Music Series

The islands of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia are steeped in diverse musical traditions that reach far beyond the expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Music in Pacific Island Cultures is the first brief, single-volume text to provide a thematic, succinct introduction to the music of the Pacific Islands--a region of the world that has long been underrepresented in ethnomusicological studies.
