Sounds of Resistance free pdf

Political resistance movements and the creation of music--two seemingly unrelated phenomenon--often result from the seed of powerful emotions, opinions, or experiences. This two-volume set presents essays that explore the connections between diverse musical forms and political activism across the globe, revealing fascinating similarities regarding the interrelationship between music and political resistance in widely different geographic or cultural circumstances.

The breadth of specific examples covered in "Sounds of Resistance: The Role of Music in Multicultural Activism" highlights strong similarities between diverse situations--for example, protest against the Communist government in Poland and drug discourse in hip hop music in the United States--and demonstrates how music has repeatedly played a vital role in energizing or expanding various political movements. By exploring activism and how music relates to specific movements through an interdisciplinary lens, the authors document how music often enables powerless members of oppressed groups to communicate or voice their concerns.
