Ethnomusicologists recount their face-to-face interactions with musicians in different cultures around the world, then turn to interactions with music itself in a number of contexts. Among their topics are the art of master musician Necdet Yasar as a key to the subtleties of classical Turkish music, High Queen Damoao and the teaching of Maranao Kolintange music, evaluating artistry on the Bulgarian bagpipe, the globalization of Burmese music, the musical construction of place and ethnicity in a Moroccan insult contest, and music ownership and control in Blackfoot culture.
