Marginalised Music

Music, Religion and Politics from Western Odisha / India

By Lidia Guzy

This volume presents the results of a pioneering anthropological documentation of unknown traditions of sacred music performed by marginalized musicians and priest-musicians of the rural Bora Sambar region of India's western Odisha. The book is based on ethnographic research conducted from 2002 to 2010, presenting the first documentation of a unique sound culture. Local music is analyzed as an indigenous theory, and thus becomes a crucial medium of religion, culture, and politics. (Series: SoundCultureStudies / KlangKulturStudien - Vol. 8 )
