3 Audio CDs for Titons Worlds of Music: An Introduction to the Music of the Worlds Peoples, Shorter Version, 3rd by Jeff Todd Titon
Worlds of Music 3rd Edition, Disc 1
Jeff Todd Titon. New York: Schirmer Books, This well-known textbook for introductory courses in world music, like several of its competitors, consists of a series of regional case studies by various authors that add up to an episodic survey. Each chapter is large, dense, and sumptuously illustrated both in these pages and on accompanying cassette tapes or CDs. There is more than enough material here for a yearlong course for hard-working, bright students. For a semester course, one would extract three to five case studies. Alternatively, any chapter could serve as the basis for discussing music in a more general course on the concerned culture.
An exciting introduction to the diversity of musical cultures including Africa, North and South America, Eastern Europe, India, Indonesia, and Japan, this text conveys the fascination and the excitement associated with ethnomusicology through in-depth case studies written by those who have studied these cultures firsthand. Readers are introduced to the performers and learn the variations in style and opinion that make each culture's music vibrant and alive. The authors provide an understanding of each culture and its music, as well as an explanation of the theory and practice of ethnomusicology. Jeff Todd Titon received his Ph. He has completed fieldwork in North America on religious folk music, blues music and old-time fiddling with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
