Includes bibliographical references and index."The first edition of Rebel Musics, published in 2003, sought to explore how musical activism resonates in practical and political terms, how musical resistance brings together voices that might otherwise remain silent, and how political action through music increases the potential for people to determine their own fate. If anything, these issues seem to be even more pressing today. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Black Rose Books, this second volume of Rebel Musics features a collection of new essays from artists and scholars that will continue to explore and spark debate about these vital topics in compelling ways. The book offers a fascinating journey into a rich, complex world, where music and politics unite, where rebel musicians are mobilizing for political change, resistance, and social justice. With explosive lyrics and driving rhythms, rebel musicians are helping to mobilize movements for political change and social justice, at home and around the world."--Issued also in electronic format.
