MUS 126 SC - Music in East Asia and its American Diasporas
This course introduces the "traditional" music of China, Korea, and Japan and explores the ways in which traditional performing arts have been transformed, adapted, and given new meanings in these modern nation-states and the East Asian diasporic communities of the United States. A survey of these musical traditions will be followed by a closer study of pungmul, kabuki, taiko, Chinese opera, and pansori. This course satisfies the fine arts requirement.
