Course Description

The deliberate mixing of two or more musical styles can produce fascinating results. After establishing the characteristics of various musical genres, we will investigate the many inter-genre combinations of classical, folk, jazz, rock, world music, etc., and explore what makes some of these fusions successful while others fall flat. We’ll listen to a wide variety of musical hybrids, including Gershwin, Steeleye Span, Miles Davis, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Claude Bolling, Béla Fleck, The Silk Road, Afro Celt Sound System, “Hamilton,” and many more. Along the way, we will discuss some thorny issues such as authenticity, cultural appropriation, and objectivity.
