Study World Music at Otago



Otago offers a wide range of subjects covering diverse musics of the world. We examine the social and cultural meanings of any musical style of any culture, how to study music and the people performing it, how music fits into its cultural context, and specific music of Asian, Pacific, Latin American, and European cultures. We also offer students the chance to play Javanese gamelan (Indonesian percussion), Japanese koto (zither), and African drumming (djembe) as practical studies in ethnomusicology, either as stand alone papers or within a specific area study.
