Popular Music and Local Identity
Rock, Pop, and Rap in Europe and OceaniaBook - 1996
Explores the interaction between the global manifestations of contemporary pop, rock, and rap music and local music scenes in the Czech Republic, Italy, Australia, and Aotearoa/New Zealand. Examines indigenous pop music in these countries and elsewhere in relation to the World Music phenomenon and the importation and appropriation of US and British musical idioms, challenging the cultural imperialism thesis as too simplistic.
