The University of Hawai’i Ethnomusicology Association will present EMA concert 2013–“Sounding Ethnomusicology: Transcending Borders”–Friday, March 1, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. in Orvis Auditorium. Admission is free.
The concert will explore interaction between different cultures and ideas with pieces that highlight, to varying degrees, interacting traditions, changing practices, and even genres. East engages the West, technology merges with tradition, and internal practices explore new avenues of expression.
The Ethnomusicology Association is a student-run organization that seeks to increase awareness and understanding of all musics and cultures through outreach, education, and performance within the University, the community, and beyond. Although the group is composed largely of ethnomusicology students, all students are able and encouraged to join.
