This subject explores selected styles of music from the Asian region, including but not limited to Japan, China, Indonesia and India. Students will engage in detail with a variety of types of music from the region, including vocal and instrumental music, art music, folk traditions and contemporary popular genres. We will consider these musics in social, political and historical context. Through engagement with readings and audio-visual material as well as discussion, we will explore how issues such as globalisation, colonisation and the formation of individual and collective identities intersect with Asian musical practices.
