  • The aim of this book is to offer an introduction to the underlying principles of non-Western music and to encourage the reader to explore rich and fascinating sounds and rhythms from around the world.

Each chapter examines the rhythm, melody, harmony and instruments of the region's music, plus elements of the culture which contribute towards an appreciation of the music, such as religion, poetry, drama and dance.
