Music and Media in Local Life: Music Practice in a Newar Neighbourhood in Nepal

Ingemar Grandin (Author)

This books presents the musical life of the Newar town of Kirtipur, Nepal. Newar musical traditions are prominent in the local musical life, and this heritage is presented in some detail in the book. Between the vivacious peaks of musical activity from the traditional ensembles, however, modern music from radios and cassette-players take over much o the town’s soundscape. So the role of the media in local musical life is the book’s second major theme. A third major theme is how the vibrant ethnic and political movements help shape the town’s musical activity. With their rich and complex civilization, the Newars have given the Kathmandu valley of Nepal much of the unique culture and cultural heritage. Music and media in local life was first published in 1989, and is still today the only study of Newar musical life in a full book format. This is the second, update edition of the book.
