Sound Alliances : Indigenous Peoples, Cultural Politics, and Popular Music in the Pacific Hardback
Part of the Cultural Studies: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
An anthology of essays on the new syncretic, or 'fusion', styles of music of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific region, who have adopted forms of popular music as an expression of their cultural identity.
Its strength lies in the layering up of a sense of community of inquiry, and the fostering of an intertextual head of steam, grounded in a set of empirical, rather than theoretical, concerns.
It considers the interrelation between music, popular culture, politics and (national) identity, but also looks at the business aspect of producing and distributing music in the Pacific region.
