Geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists study islands as unique environmental and cultural systems. This term we will study and present some of the world’s most unique music from island cultures around the world. We will be performing musics from well-known Island cultures such as Hawaii, New Zealand, and Jamaica while exploring lesser-known musics from isles of Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, and North America.
