Philip V. Bohlman

Very Short Introductions

  • World music is presented in its full historical and modern diversity, ranging from folk and traditional music to 'worldbeat'
  • It devotes space in each chapter to those who make and study world music, the musicians and the scholars in the field
  • Bohlman strikes a balance between capturing the boundlessness of world music and the trappings of globalization.
