« What were the musical practices of Early Black Americans, and how can current performers and educators engage with them? We invite scholars, teachers, and practitioners to a two-day symposium designed to amass a musical toolbox for performing this music. We hope also to create a space for long term collaboration. The symposium takes the antebellum Black American practices as a point of departure but moves chronologically backwards and forwards and geographically across the Caribbean and Atlantic. Preliminary investigations include: what types of music and vocal/instrumental techniques did Black musicians in antebellum United States perform and in what contexts? What do we know about the performances, and what are the gaps in that knowledge ? What tools do we need to interpret available sources ? What are the ethical questions to consider surrounding performances of—and specifically white musicians’ participation in—historical music of the Black experience ? »
Date limite de soumission : 10 mars 2022.
