Austronesian Soundscapes is a collection of essays on Austronesian musics that transcends disciplinary frontiers in the humanities and social sciences. In all of Austronesia, music plays a crucial role in the negotiation of cultural identities; yet research on the diversity of the Austronesian cultural belt's music has hitherto been rather sparse. Responding to this gap, Austronesian Soundscapes offers comprehensive analyses of traditional and contemporary Austronesian musics, investigating how music in the region reflects the 21st century's challenges. With references and index.
