Music, culture and creativity

Toynbee, Jason (2003). Music, culture and creativity. In: Clayton, Martin; Middleton, Richard and Herbert, Trevor eds. The cultural study of music. New York, NY, USA: Routledge, pp. 102–112.



Increasingly, music is being studied as it relates to specific cultures -- not only by ethnomusicologists, but by traditional musicologists as well. This book is an anthology of new writings that serves as a basic text on music and culture. Drawing on writers from music, anthropology, sociology, and the related fields, the book both defines the field -- that is, What is the relation between music and culture? -- and presents case studies of particular issues in world musics.
