Bridges Academy: Music in Asian Cultures
Date and Time
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Degheri Alumni Center
San Diego, CA 92110
Music traditions throughout Asia have been changing to reflect changes in culture, religious identity, politics, and globalization. Join Music Department Chair and Professor David Harnish, PhD, to listen to select music styles from India, Indonesia, Japan, and China, and learn about the unique approaches each country has taken toward modernizing their music. While musicians in Japan and China have tended to emulate the framework of Western art music in their development, India and Indonesia have instead hybridized their music traditions with global music elements and styles such as jazz. The decisions that each country has made indicate distinct aesthetic, cultural, and political priorities.
Ages 55 and up.
