Global Seminar: The Sounds of Australia: Music, Tradition, and Identity

Global Seminar: The Sounds of Australia: Music, Tradition, and Identity

In the case of the indigenous Australian peoples, music took the place of a written language. Their music was the method by which tradition and knowledge passed from generation to generation. This music continues to be embedded in Aboriginal life in a way that is distinct from the Western tradition: as a means of communication, a crucial aspect of ceremonial life, and in defining identity. In this Seminar, students experience the rich musical traditions of the Aborigine culture and explore the role of music as a factor in the development of historical consciousness. Students have the opportunity to perform, compose, and record interpretations of traditional Australian music.
