Second Edition

- World music is presented in its full historical and modern diversity, ranging from folk and traditional music to 'worldbeat'
- It devotes space in each chapter to those who make and study world music, the musicians and the scholars in the field
- Bohlman strikes a balance between capturing the boundlessness of world music and the trappings of globalization.

'World music' emerged as an invention of the West from encounters with other cultures. This book draws readers into a remarkable range of these historical encounters, in which music had the power to evoke the exotic and to give voice to the voiceless. In the course of the volume's eight chapters the reader witnesses music's involvement in the modern world, but also the individual moments and particular histories that are crucial to an understanding of music's diversity. World Music is wide-ranging in its geographical scope, yet individual chapters provide in-depth treatments of selected music cultures and regional music histories. The book frequently zooms in on repertoires and musicians - such as Bob Marley, Bartok, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - and attempts to account for world music's growing presence and popularity at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
