Synopsis of The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music, Vol. 9: Australia and the Pacific Islands

In the most comprehensive collection of information ever published on the performing arts of Oceania, more than 140 scholars describe the music of the indigenous peoples of Australia, New Guinea, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. Of special interest is the emphasis on music's relationship to poetry (with vocal texts in over 50 Pacific languages) and dance. In addition, readers will find articles on such contemporary topics as tourism, immigration, gender, cultural identity, and political protest.
