The volume of essays, Music in Cyprus, co-authored by MSt tutor Nicoletta Demetriou and Jim Samson, Emeritus Professor of Music at Royal Holloway, University of London, has been published by Ashgate.
“The authors consider such questions as: What is the role of different musics in defining national, regional, social and cultural identities in Cyprus? How do Cypriot alterities illuminate European projects of modernity? And what has been the impact of westernization and modernization (and, conversely, of orientalization) on music in Cyprus? The book will be of interest to students and academics working not only in both historical musicology and ethnomusicology, but also in the history and anthropology of Cyprus and of the entire Greek-Anatolian region.”
