    We started a discussion on music and rebellion a few years back and unfortunately it petered out. Might be worthwhile to combine these threads?

    One of three threads to be merged, Bill M. found the third after Selil's work.

    The oldest thread was called 'Rebellion, insurgency, music and COIN', it joined on on hip-hop music and MENA (I think that was the title) and one of Slap's threads on music (he is our resident YouTube conductor). Title now is simply 'Music & Small Wars (a broad theme)'.

    First off, thanks to David and Sam for merging these threads, and now some additional material you may find of interest. Having spent some time in W. Africa, many parts of it are a musical culture, much like the cultures of many island nations (Slapout gave an example for Jamaica), and at least parts of SE Asia like the Philippines and the hill tribes in Indochina. This first link points to the relevance of that for SWJ practitioners. It is a pleasant change of venue from most of the websites that only discuss how music is used (largely ineffectively) to support interrogations.

    Review – Music, Culture & Conflict in Mali

    Music is the glue that holds Mali together, the bridge that connects its past with its present, the ink with which its history is written. Without it, Mali as we know it would not exist.
    Today, Mali has one of the world’s richest and most vivid music scenes, and it is not surprising that there was an outpouring of outrage and despair last year when the Islamist militants, who swept across the north of the country, banned music in the territories they held. The rebel groups have since been driven off by French forces and kept away by UN peacekeepers, but it was the Islamists’ campaign against music that forms the backdrop to Andy Morgan’s impressive new book Music, Culture & Conflict in Mali.
    They kindly provided a link to the e-version of the book. If the Army is serious about exploring the human domain and how to influence it, this appears to be one dimension of it that should be studied.

    http://freemuse.org/graphics/Publica...flict_MALI.pdf

    This German University has an ongoing study project regarding music and its relationship to conflict that some may want to pursue.

    https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/84354.html

    The Free Floater junior research group “Music, Conflict and the State” promotes and conducts research into the role(s) of music in promoting, facilitating and perpetuating violent responses to conflicts between social groups and communities, including inter- and intrastate wars.
    Current focuses of our work include:


    ##The use of music to advocate or incite hatred and violence

    ##The use of children as musicians in military and paramilitary organisations, and the role of music in the life of child soldiers

    ##Music and missionary work in the context of colonialism and colonial wars

    ##The use of music in connection with torture and other forms of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and punishment.

    Some effects of technology on music and protest

    Abstract

    This paper discusses the issues of technology, music, and the intersection with social movements such as protest. Relying heavily on discussion of the guitar and music hall as examples where technology has created radical change the discussion centers on the elements that allow for the musician to interact with larger and larger audiences. With political tension and economic incentives in competition the artist and recording label economic models are examined as barriers to larger audience acquisition. The digital music movement has provided methods to remove the recording label and decrease costs to distribution. With the increased freedom from the normal hierarchies new artists are enabled to further their own agendas through music.

    Default Nice paper, Selil!

    Selil, good discussion in that paper. I've been thinking about the obverse effects, myself, namely how recording technology is making music less accessible to people, at least in certain genres (Baroque & Classical) by creating unrealistic expectations of performance quality.

    Bill, thanks for the links. Just downloaded the Morgan paper for reading....

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Default Several examples of music used in "small wars",

    in this post, where graphics and lyrics are used to present the creator's own mythology, version of history and particular viewpoint.

    Regards

    When you did that, what did you do with the first two posts of North Africa's Hip Hop Protest Music?

    Ok, it's post 13 this thread.

    If you're still pushing your janitor's broom around then this ought to be reeled in as well -
