New book on Mongolian music to be released in April!

Mongolian Sound Worlds
ed. by Jennifer C. Post, Sunmin Yoon and Charlotte d'Evelyn, University of Illinois Press.

"Insights into musical place, practice, identity, and heritage that arise during moves from steppes to stage, Chinggis Khan’s empire to globalization, and traditional throat-singing and horsehead fiddle to heavy metal fusion will--as with the Mongolian sound worlds so vividly portrayed--reverberate far beyond the borders of Mongolia."
--Carole Pegg, author of Mongolian Music, Dance, and Oral Narrative: Performing Diverse Identities

Abstract:
Music cultures today in rural and urban Mongolia and Inner Mongolia emerge from centuries-old pastoralist practices that were reshaped by political movements in the twentieth century. Mongolian Sound Worlds investigates the unique sonic elements, fluid genres, social and spatial performativity, and sounding objects behind new forms of Mongolian music--forms that reflect the nation’s past while looking towards its globalized future. Drawing on fieldwork in locations across the Inner Asian region, the contributors report on Mongolia’s genres and musical landscapes; instruments like the morin khuur, tovshuur, and Kazakh dombyra; combined fusion band culture; and urban popular music. Their broad range of concerns include nomadic herders’ music and instrument building, ethnic boundaries, heritage-making, ideological influences, nationalism, and global circulation.
A merger of expert scholarship and eyewitness experience, Mongolian Sound Worlds illuminates a diverse and ever-changing musical culture.
