Music as Intangible Cultural Heritage Policy, Ideology, and Practice in the Preservation of East Asian Traditions

Music as Intangible Cultural Heritage: Policy, Ideology, and Practice in the Preservation of East Asian Traditions (Soas Musicology Series) by Keith Howard
English | 2012 | ISBN: 1409439070 | 277 pages | PDF | 2,5 MB




This book explores the policy, ideology and practice of preservation and promotion of East Asian intangible cultural heritage, focusing on music traditions. It constitutes the first book to situate considerations of Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan together - states that were amongst the first to establish legislation and systems for indigenous traditions. Calls to preserve the intangible heritage have recently become louder, not least with increasing UNESCO attention. The imperative to preserve is, throughout the region, cast as a way to counter the perceived loss of cultural diversity caused by globalization, modernization, urbanization, and the spread of the mass media. In this volume, one chapter on each of China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan incorporates a foundational overview of preservation policy and practice of musical intangible cultural heritage at the state level. These chapters are complemented by a set of chapters that explore how the practice of policy has impacted on specific musics, from Confucian ritual through Kam big song to the Okinawan sanshin. Each chapter is based on rich ethnographic data collected through extended fieldwork. The team of international contributors give both insider and outsider perspectives as they both account for, and critique, policy, ideology and practice in East Asian music as intangible cultural heritage.
