Abstract:

Double-reed instruments have been under-represented in ethnomusicology and related fields and deserve much more serious and sustained attention. To fill the void in current scholarship, the 25th Colloquium of the International Council for Traditional Music, 'Double Reeds along the Great Silk Road : The Interaction of Theory and Practice from Antiquity to Contemporary Performance', was held at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, China, in 2018. With a selection of papers from the colloquium, the present volume gathers and analyzes existing documents, whether written, historical or ethnographical, and provides information on previously neglected regions. With contributions by Sahereh Astaneh, Yves Defrance, Jürgen Elsner, Gisa Jähnichen, Rastko Jakovljevic, Chinthaka Prageeth Meddegoda, Uwe Umberto Paetzold, Raja Iskandar Bin Raja Halid, Şebnem Sençerman, Timkehet Teffera, Rewadee Ungpho, Anne van Oostrum, Esbjörn Wettermark, Liu Xiangkun, and Terada Yoshitaka.
