Excursions in World Music, Seventh Edition, CD-Audio Book

Excursions in World Music, Seventh Edition CD-Audio

Edited by Bruno Nettl, Timothy Rommen


Excursions in World Music is a comprehensive introductory textbook to worldmusic, creating a panoramic experience for students by engaging the many cultures around the globe, and highlighting the sheer diversity to be experienced in the world of music.

At the same time, the text illustrates the often profound ways through which a deeper exploration of these many different communities can reveal overlaps, shared horizons, and common concerns in spite of and, because of, this very diversity. The new seventh edition introduces five brand new chapters, including chapters by three new contributors on the Middle East, South Asia, and Korea, as well as a new chapter on Latin America along with a new introduction written by Timothy Rommen.

General updates have been made to other chapters, replacing visuals and updating charts/statistics.

Excursions in World Music remains a favorite among ethnomusicologists who want students to explore the in-depth knowledge and scholarship that animates regional studies of world music.

A companion website with a new test bank and instructor's manual is available for instructors.

Numerous resources are posted for students, including streamed audio listening, interactive quizzes, flashcards, and an interactive map with pinpoints of interest and activities.

An ancillary package of a 3-CD set of audio tracks is available for separate purchase.
