A Very Short IntroductionBook - 2002
"Philip Bohlman asks: What is music? If the question is simple, the answers are not. In this fascinating introduction to the remarkable diversity of world music - from Swiss yodeling to pilgrims' chants, Yiddish folk songs to Àrt-Song' from Tunis - Bohlman explores the interpretation and, sometimes, misinterpretation of world music by the West."--BOOK JACKET.
