Project #91598 - Ethnomusic

ETHNOMUSICOLOGY 25: GLOBAL POP Jesse D. Ruskin, Ph.D. Guidelines for Paper #2 – Global Pop in Los Angeles The goal of this assignment is to document, as a class, the varieties of global popular music that can be found in Los Angeles. Students will use the UCLA Library’s resources, including the Ethnomusicology Archive and Powell Library’s Inquiry Labs, to conduct original research on an individual musician or band – from any historical period up to the present – that has made a contribution to the cultural life of Los Angeles. The selected musician or band may practice any genre of popular music that has direct ties to Los Angeles including, for example, Mexican mariachi, Brazilian samba, Filipino hip-hop, African-American gospel, and Cambodian rock music. Your selection should be made from the list of suggested artists/bands (see below) or, if approved by the instructor or TA, you may choose a musician or band of your own interest. Students may make use of course readings, but must also cite at least four outside sources (including a minimum of one print publication, such as a book, newspaper, or magazine article, and one audiovisual source, such as a music video, documentary film, or audio recording). You may use Wikipedia to locate other sources, but it will not count as one of your required sources. Make sure you consult the artist or band’s official website, and those of legitimate educational and entertainment outlets, since fan sites often contain unreliable or unverified information. The paper should be five (5) pages (1250 words), and should be formatted in Times New Roman, 12pt., double-spaced, with 1” margins. Students will also write a one-page (250-word) abstract – a summary of the paper’s main points – and upload it to the course website Discussion Forum. The assignment grade will be based on both the paper (submitted as a hardcopy) and abstract (submitted online). Papers must address the following points: a) Formative context. In what social, historical, and cultural context did the artist/band emerge? b) Biographical information. Who is/are the artist(s)? What are their personal and professional stories? What musical influences shaped them? c) Music. What does their music sound like? What genre(s) of global pop do they play? What instrument(s) do they use? Describe a sample audio recording or music video. (You do not need to use technical musical terminology, but you should demonstrate careful listening and observation.) d) Connection/contribution to Los Angeles. What is the artist/band’s connection to Los Angeles? Who are their audiences? What contributions did/do they make to the social and cultural life of Los Angeles? Note: In cases where biographical information on the artist/band is limited, you may instead emphasize the artist/band’s formative context, music, and contribution to Los Angeles.
