Australia : exploring the musical landscape / edited by Caitlin Rowley.
It's one of the most frequent questions asked of staff at the Australian Music Centre. Australia: Exploring the Musical Landscape is an attempt to provide, if not answers, then at least some pathways into the diverse and vibrant musics of a country whose cultural identity is continuously evolving. This book is an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to find their way across Australia's complex musical landscape. The journey starts out with concepts behind traditional Aboriginal music, popular, jazz, classical and folk musics, and the music of 'new traditions', where traditional immigrant cultures meet and meld to create something quite new.
