MUS 106(C) - Introduction to World Music


Credit(s): 3
MassTransfer Block Code: Humanities/Fine and Performing Arts
Knowledge of Diversity Code: KOD
An introductory appreciation course, open to all students. It explores music outside the Western European tradition, including music of Polynesia, Native North America, Latin America, Africa and Black America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Indonesia, India, and Japan. Specific topics chosen from those areas are studied, and we discuss how cultural, political, social, and technological developments affect the music, its performers, composers, and audience. We examine the music itself, and discuss how it has influenced and been influenced by aspects of culture, how it reflects cultural identity and experience, and how its evolution is tied to changes in society. It integrates analysis of the historic, sociopolitical, and cultural forces which shape the experiences of all people, and emphasizes interlocking race, gender, and class perspectives for analyzing musical works.
