9780028726120: Worlds of Music: An Introduction to the Music of the World's Peoples

An exciting introduction to the diversity of musical cultures including Africa, North and South America, Eastern Europe, India, Indonesia, and Japan, this text conveys the fascination and the excitement associated with ethnomusicology through in-depth case studies written by those who have studied these cultures firsthand. Readers are introduced to the performers and learn the variations in style and opinion that make each culture's music vibrant and alive. The authors provide an understanding of each culture and its music, as well as an explanation of the theory and practice of ethnomusicology.

About the Author:

Jeff Todd Titon received his Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Minnesota, where he studied ethnomusicology with Alan Kagan and musicology with Johannes Riedel. He has completed fieldwork in North America on religious folk music, blues music and old-time fiddling with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. For two years he was the guitarist in the Lazy Bill Lucas Blues Band, a group that appeared in the 1970 Ann Arbor Blues Festival. The author or editor of seven books, including EARLY DOWNHOME BLUES (which won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award) and the five-volume AMERICAN MUSICAL TRADITIONS (named by Library Journal as one of the outstanding reference works of 2003), Titon is also a documentary photographer and filmmaker. In 1991, he wrote a hypertext multimedia computer program about old-time fiddler Clyde Davenport that is regarded as a model for interactive representations of people making music. He founded the ethnomusicology program at Tufts University, where he taught from 1971 to 1986. From 1990 to 1995, he served as the editor of ETHNOMUSICOLOGY, the journal of the Society for Ethnomusicology. A Fellow of the American Folklore Society since 1986, he has been Professor of Music and the director of the Ph.D. program in ethnomusicology at Brown University.
