Oxford University Press Bolero Ozon. Fiddler on the Move: Exploring the Klezmer World. Klezmer music is now experiencing a tremendous new spurt of interest worldwide with both Jews and non-Jews recreating this restless volatile, and vibrant musical culture.
Firmly centered in the United States, klezmer has paradoxically moved back across the Atlantic as a distinctly "American" music, played throughout central and eastern Europe, as well as in many other parts of the world. Fiddler on the Move places klezmer music squarely within American music studies, cultural studies, and ethnomusicology. Neither a chronology nor a comprehensive survey, the book describes a variety of approaches and perspectives for coming to terms with the highly diverse array of activities found under the klezmer umbrella.
Bringing to his subject the insights of an accomplished ethnomusicologist, Slobin addresses such questions as: How does klezmer overlap with, and differ from, the many other contemporary "heritage" musics based on an assumed connection with a group identity and links to a tradition?
He cares about why people are called to klezmer, and how it functions in an age of world music Slobin does a great job of describing This book will appeal to readers looking for insight into why klezmer pulls in so many listeners, [and] why it is we--and so many others--have developed a love for this music at this time.
