This is the first book to tackle the diverse styles and multiple histories of popular music in India. It brings together fourteen of the field's leading scholars to contribute chapters on a range of topics from the classic songs of Bollywood to contemporary remixes. The chapters in this volume address the impact of media and technology on contemporary music, the variety of industrial developments and contexts for Indian popular music, and historical trends in popular music development both before and after the Indian Independence in 1947. The contributors also address the subcontinent's historical relationships with colonialism, the transnational market economies, local governmental factors, international conventions, and a host of other circumstances that shed light on the development of popular music throughout India. To illustrate each chapter author's points, and to make available music otherwise not always easily accessible, the book features a companion website of audio and video tracks.

About the Author:


GREGORY D. BOOTH is Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at the University of Auckland and author of Behind the Curtain: Making Music in Mumbai's Film Studios (OUP 2008) and Brass Baja: Stories from the World of Indian Wedding Bands (OUP 2005).

BRADLEY SHOPE is Assistant Professor of Music at Texas A & M in Corpus Christi and is the author of numerous articles and book chapters on popular music in India.

Review:


"Since the 1980s, the Indian popular music scene has come to encompass much more than the Mumbai cinema hit parade. More than Bollywood presents a ground-breaking and illuminating set of essays which collectively broaden our understanding of Indian popular culture." -- Peter Manuel, ethnomusicologist, Graduate Center of the City University of New York


"When the history of Indian popular music is finally written this collected volume will form its foundations. Its contributions are wide-ranging, and include discussions of the mighty Hindi film song, whose hybrid nature adapts and transforms other musical genres and styles, and is seen as dominating all forms of Indian popular music. Especially welcome are the chapters on non-Hindi film songs, non-filmi music, and the recording industry itself."-- Rachel Dwyer, Professor of Indian Cultures and Cinema, SOAS, University of London


"...Will make an impact on the study of popular music from a global perspective, and on the study of Indian culture." -- New Zealand Journal oo Asian Studies
