This is a blog dedicated to Music and The Global Metropolis, a remixed version of global pop survey, focusing on the sounds that emerge when disparate musical cultures come together in the major metropolises of the world. Throughout the semester, we will study six different major cities (New York, Mexico City, São Paulo, Dakar, Tokyo, and Mumbai), the major musical developments to come from them, and the cultural conflicts and celebrations that emerge in contemporary urban life.

Posts on this blog vary between course administration and extended discussion of topics raised in class. The content on this blog, while certainly related to New College of Florida, in no way represents the views of that institution.
