9780195385427: Divine Inspirations: Music and Islam in Indonesia

Divine Inspirations: Music and Islam in Indonesia brings together the work of 11 international scholars into an unprecedented volume focused on religion and performance in a nation celebrated for its extraordinary arts, religious diversity, and natural beauty. The resulting collection provides a panoramic view of Indonesia's Islamic arts in a variety of settings and communities. Together the authors address how history, politics, spirituality, and gender are expressed through performance and how Indonesian Islamic culture intersects with the ideology and practice of nationalism.

Unique and engaging, Divine Inspirations will fascinate readers interested in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Islam, world religions, global discourse, and music, arts and ritual.

Anne K. Rasmussen is Associate Professor at The College of William and Mary, where she also directs a Middle Eastern Music Ensemble.

Review:


"Absolutely essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the complex diversity of music in Indonesia today." --Prof. R. Anderson Sutton, School of Music, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"Divine Inspirations illustrates and confounds the perennially contested line between religion and culture in Islam. This pioneering volume reanimates Islamic studies in Indonesia and beyond by revealing the many performative paths to the divine." --Engseng Ho, author of The Graves of Tarim: Genealogy and Mobility across the Indian Ocean


"The influence of Islam on the arts has long been overlooked in Western studies of contemporary Indonesia. This timely and original book changes that entirely. It will become the standard for the study of the arts in Indonesia and a model for similar studies in the broader Muslim world." --Robert Hefner, Director, Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs, Boston University


"[A] groundbreaking volume...Extremely successful in its aims and will be very well received within the circles of Southeast Asian studies and ethnomusicology." --Indonesia


"Essential reading for anyone studying Islam or music in Indonesia, for individuals seeking to understand the diversity of Islamic practices throughout the world, and for those interested in how arts interact with and actively shape the expression of Islam...[with] increasing academic agendas, budgets, and numbers of faculty lines devoted to the study of Islam, Divine Inspirations offers a timely ethnomusicological contribution to this project. --Ethnomusicology

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 238 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Indonesia is celebrated for its courtly arts, its beautiful beaches, its tourist attractions, and its artisan marketplace. Yet long overdue is a look at Indonesian Islam as the source of and inspiration for the arts throughout the history if its people, and in the dynamic popular performances of today. From the rhythmic grooves of dang dut, the archipelago s tenacious pop music, to the oft-quoted image of the wayang shadow puppet-theater, Divine Inspirations: Music and Islam in Indonesia investigates the expression of the Muslim religion through a diversity of art forms in this region. And from Quranic recitation by teenaged girls and women in Jakarta to the provincial patronage of Sufi arts and Muslim ritual as regional performance, this volume further addresses the ways in which Islam-inspired performance has been co-opted and appropriated for the expression of national culture. Eleven ethnographic case studies by an international roster of specialists in Indonesian expressive culture and performing arts are complimented by an introduction by co-editors David Harnish and Anne Rasmussen, and an epilogue by senior scholar Judith Becker. The collection explores the region s various micro-cultures of music, dance, religious ritual, government patronage, social censorship, tourism, development, and gender roles and relations. This pastiche speaks on personal, political, global, and local levels to the most important question of identity and ideology in Indonesia today: Islam. Divine Inspirations will engage readers interested in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Islam, world religions, global discourse, and music, arts and ritual. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780195385427
