How hybrid? Global music mixtures

A six-part series presented by ethnomusicologist Megan Collins

(1) How is globalisation influencing the way we think about music and ourselves? Megan Collins re-contextualises five portable instruments, the violin, guitar, hammered dulcimer, ukulele and accordion, to explore how they have made their way around the world and developed into locally meaningful tools of expression (RNZ)
