Music and Cultural Rights PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Music and Cultural Rights free pdf Framing timely and pressing questions concerning music and cultural rights, this collection illustrates the ways in which music - as a cultural practice, a commercial product, and an aesthetic form - has become enmeshed in debates about human rights, international law, and struggles for social justice. The essays in this volume examine how interpretations of cultural rights vary across societies- how definitions of rights have evolved- and how rights have been invoked in relation to social struggles over cultural access, use, representation, and ownership. The individual case studies, many of them based on ethnographic field research, demonstrate how musical aspects of cultural rights play out in specific cultural contexts, including the Philippines, China, Hawaii, Peru, Ukraine, and Brazil.
