Indian music has become a global musical language, but its South Asian roots remain strong, diverse, and local. This course will introduce music cultures of India by means of a performance approach that focuses on music makers as strategists and on music as both sonic message and social action. Through live and AV documented case studies we will explore the work of music in four central domains of 20thc. South Asian history: devotional religion, nationalism and nation, gender identities, and media culture.
