Samenvatting

Positioned on a major trade route, the Toba Batak people of Sumatra have long witnessed the ebb and flow of cultural influence from India, the Middle East, and the West. Living as ethnic and religious minorities within modern Indonesia, Tobas have recast this history of difference through interpretations meant to strengthen or efface the identities it has shaped. Antiphonal Histories examines Toba musical performance as a legacy of global history, and a vital expression of local experience. This intriguingly constructed ethnography searches the palm liquor stand and the sanctuary to show how Toba performance manifests its many histories through its ''local music''—Lutheran brass band hymns, gong-chime music sacred to Shiva, and Jimmie Rodgers yodeling. Combining vivid narrative, wide-ranging historical research, and personal reflections, Antiphonal Histories traces the musical trajectories of the past to show us how the global is manifest in the performative moment.

Recensie(s)

This is not old-style 'objective' ethnography but instead an engaging narrative with a constantly changing focus. Byl applies her considerable writing skills to helping readers understand the intricate cultural threads that give Toba music its meaning. --R. Knight, Choice Antiphonal Histories, a compelling blend of historiography and ethnography, is the first English-language book dedicated to the music of the Toba, one of the people who form part of the larger Batak group and live in the highland regions of the Indonesian province of North Sumatra and it's capital, Medan. Written in engaging, lively language, peppered with personal stories and jokes, the book is a pleasure to read. Byl has a flair for storytelling, taking the reader with her on the journey deep into the Sumatran highlands, the busy streets of Medan, and the lives of the people she met. --Jennifer Fraser, The World of Music (new series) The book is highly recommended as an original and vividly written reflexive autobiography that is largely based on personal reflections and stories of the Toba people whom Byl has met over the course of her fieldwork. --Margaret Kartomi, Inside Indonesia
