The interdisciplinary essays gathered in this volume explore how music audiences and markets are imagined in a globalized scenario, how music reflects and reflects upon new understandings of citizenship beyond the nation-state, and how music works as a site of resistance against globalization.

Review quote

Postnational Musical Identities offers diverse scholarly interpretations of music in relation to globalization through varied musical examples...Contribute to knowledge of particular musics, illustrate varied processes of musical production and explicate the interpretive frameworks these musics both engender and by which they are engendered...The book offers a variety of methodological and conceptual approaches to the study of music production and meaning in the complicated "globalized" world in which we all live. Current Musicology, Number 89, Spring 2010 Postnational Musical Identities is a remarkable collection of essays that brings together scholars from several disciplinary and regional specializations to reflect critically and innovatively on the production, distribution, performance and consumption of music in a globalized context. These essays bear witness to Stuart Hall's famous remark that cultural identity is not so much about ancient 'roots' as it is about jagged 'routes' that traverse multiple borders. Combining keen theoretical insights with feet-on-the-ground analysis, this volume is a most welcome and timely contribution to music scholarship. -- Christopher Dunn, Tulane University The editors of this volume do a laudable job balancing historical essays with more ethnographic ones and although the essays complement each other well, ten of twelve focus on Latino or Latin American case studies...Overall, Postnational Musical Identities makes a valuable and fascinating contribution to studies dealing with borderlands, migration, and identities. Project Muse This book is a welcome addition to the growing corpus of work that seeks to re-situate new configurations of the national amidst a reductive debate in musicology which has too often become unhelpfully polarized between the global and the local.
