9780252031168: The Black Cow's Footprint: Time, Space and Music in the Lives of the Kotas of South India

A black cow leads the members of a South Indian hill tribe and indicates where to found each village. This book explores how the Kotas 'anchor' their activities around places and moments in time and in the process constitute themselves as individuals and as a group.

Review:

"[Wolf] presents us with one of the most detailed accounts of musical performance in any small Indian community; and is able to site it functionally within the social contexts of daily life and ritual activities."--Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
