Samenvatting

Theodore Levin takes readers on a journey through the rich sonic world of inner Asia, where the elemental energies of wind, water, and echo; the ubiquitous presence of birds and animals; and the legendary feats of heroes have inspired a remarkable art and technology of sound-making among nomadic pastoralists. As performers from Tuva and other parts of inner Asia have responded to the growing worldwide popularity of their music, Levin follows them to the West, detailing their efforts to nourish global connections while preserving the power and poignancy of their music traditions.

Recensie(s)

Ted Levin gives us a vivid picture of music in inner Asia todayoboth the ancient traditions and the way they're rubbing up against the modern world... After reading this immensely readable and thought-provoking book, you'll never listen to throat singing in the same way again. oSimon Broughton, editor, Songlines and Rough Guide to World Music No other writer could extract such a delicate melange of philosophy, acoustics, and aesthetics from one man's vocalization over a running streamoor report with such canny insight on how that individual must negotiate his life as a 'star' in the West. oMichael Church, BBC World Service Entertaining, fascinating, and well written, it depicts important issues in the globalization of indigenous music. oMarjorie Mandelstam Balzer, author of The Tenacity of Ethnicity
