Pop Pagans : Paganism and Popular Music, Hardback Book

Pop Pagans : Paganism and Popular Music Hardback

Part of the Studies in Contemporary and Historical Paganism series

Description

Paganism is rapidly becoming a religious, creative, and political force internationally.

It has found one of its most public expressions in popular music, where it is voiced by singers and musicians across rock, folk, techno, goth, metal, Celtic, world, and pop music.

With essays ranging across the US, UK, continental Europe, Australia and Asia, 'Pop Pagans' assesses the histories, genres, performances, and communities of pagan popular music. Over time, paganism became associated with the counter culture, satanic and gothic culture, rave and festival culture, ecological consciousness and spirituality, and new ageism.

Paganism has used music to express a powerful and even transgressive force in everyday life. 'Pop Pagans' examines the many artists and movements which have contributed to this growing phenomenon.
