No background or training in music? No problem. This shorter version of WORLDS OF MUSIC: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MUSIC OF THE WORLD'S PEOPLES is written to make music accessible. Using a case-study approach, the text presents in-depth explorations of music of several cultures from around the world. The authors—all ethnomusicologists working in their fields of expertise—base their discussions of music-cultures on their own fieldwork and give you a true sense of both the music and culture that created it. The three CDs work hand in hand with the authors' prose providing students with access to a wide range of music-cultures and include authentic recordings from the authors' fieldwork. Leading off is the long-standing jewel in the WORLDS OF MUSIC crown – James Koetting's magnificent recording of postal workers canceling stamps at the University of Ghana post office. A Western-sounding hymn tune performed against African rhythms, this piece, more that any other, lets you hear contrasting music-cultures.
