Reading for Tuesday: Introduction to Mumbai

14 Apr

In addition to the chapter from Planet of Slums, I have asked you to read an article by Jayson Beaster-Jones about music and advertising in Mumbai.

Here is the optional reading, “Mumbai: Squatter Class Culture” from Shadow Cities by Robert Neuwirth.

I know that it can be tricky shifting musical cultures so radically, so my goal is to spend Tuesday exposing you to some of the musical values in North India. If you are a fan of Hindustani music or North Indian folk music, please feel free to email me or post a comment with specific requests. Otherwise, I look forward to starting a new unit!
