Sample text

Instrumental music is musiqi, Koran singing and prayer are khandan, and folk song, popular song, classical vocal music, and the nightingale are in both categories. The barking of dogs is in neither. ) According to Merriam (1964, 64–65), the Basongye of the Congo include as music what Westerners regard as singing, exclude birdsong, and are not sure about the status of whistling and humming. Keil, on the other hand (1979, 28– 30), questions the possibility of deriving such a definition where, as among the Basongye, there are no terms to correspond to “music,” “sound,” and “noise” and points out that, among the Tiv of Nigeria, a large set of specific terms substitute for our holistic idea of music.

Also in this category of universals is the musical association with dance and speech. I can think of no culture that does not have some dance with musical accompaniment, nor one whose singing is completely without words, without poetry. Viewed as self-contained systems, the musics of the world have common properties. They include the conception of musicality, the existence of traditioncarrying networks, the ubiquity of distinct repertories of children’s music. In each society, limits are placed on musical creativity.

I had to defend my interest in non-Western music because my friends wondered whether it was actually music. There is a curious disparity in what people include under the heading of music when given time to consider the question (they exhibit broad tolerance) and what they will accept when giving quick reactions (they are more narrow-minded).
