Book Description"Remembered Rhythms" explores the role of music and cultural memory in shaping and creating diasporic identities. With contributions from leading scholars in the fields of ethnomusicology, cultural studies, sociology, and anthropology, the essays range across the musical traditions of the Indian diaspora in Trinidad, the role of Hindi film music in the diaspora, and the music of the African and Jewish diasporas in India. Illustrated throughout with halftones and accompanied by a fascinating compact disc of musical examples from many of the traditions discussed, "Remembered Rhythms" will be of significant interest to scholars of ethnomusicology and cultural anthropology.
