This shorter version of the best-selling WORLDS OF MUSIC provides much of the authoritative coverage of the comprehensive version in a format thata€™s accessible to students without any background or training in music. Using a case-study approach, the text presents in-depth explorations of music of several cultures from around the world. The authors, all ethnomusicologists working in their fields of expertise, base their discussions of music-cultures on their own fieldwork, and give students a true sense of both the music and culture that created it. General editor, Jeff Todd Titon, has written the texta€™s opening chapter that introduces students to ethnomusicology and relates each chaptera€™s music heard on the accompanying CDs to the fundamentals of music in a worldwide context. The text concludes with a chapter that invites students to participate by undertaking a fieldwork research project that increases a studenta€™s understanding of music in daily life. The supplementary three-CD set works hand in hand with the authorsa€™ prose, providing students with access to a wide range of music-cultures and include authentic recordings from the authorsa€™ fieldwork. Leading off is the long-standing jewel in the WORLDS OF MUSIC crown -- James Koettinga€™s magnificent recording of postal workers canceling stamps at the University of Ghana post office. A Western-sounding hymn tune performed against African rhythms, this piece, more that any other, lets the student hear contrasting music-cultures.
