schoolEthnomusicology - Music of underprivileged groups: Roma and Jews

One-week three-credit course organized in the framework of the Khamoro Romani Festival 2017 (May 29 – June 2, 2017), intended for university students. Lectures by internationally recognized ethnomusicologists will be held in the mornings. During these lectures, students will acquire a basic overview of the regions where Roma people have contributed to the creation of distinctive musical cultures/musics. Lectures about Jewish music will give students a general overview of the Jewish musical traditions from around the globe. The second purpose of the course is to introduce the topics related to the study of music(s) of the underprivileged groups: questions of authorship attribution, negotiations between the musicians and audiences, stereotyping, musical representation, and cultural sensitivity. In the afternoons, students will take part in workshops with Khamoro festival participants. In the evenings, students will attend festival concerts.
