World Music Performance Assignment
(Due uploaded by: 5/27/22)
Instructions: The objective of this assignment is to give you an opportunity to experience a live musical performance of music from one of the cultures studied in this class (African, Indigenous, Asian, etc.). Due to Covid-19 there are no (or very few) bay area live performances that would normally be a part of this assignment. However, you will be required to view a performance (with real musicians/singers) via Youtube (May not be a “music video”). You will identify a world Ethnic music performance that is NOT from your own cultural background. The goal is to have you venture outside of your “comfort zone” so to speak and experience a musical performance that you might not otherwise listen to/view. The performance that you choose MAY NOT be one of the examples that you viewed in any of our class Modules.
Requirements: Attend 1 live music performance (at least 1-2 full songs of a recorded live musical performance and submit a 2-3 page critical reflection along with a LINK to the performance. Your written reflection will be based on your analysis of the musical performance. Your Essay MUST address the following:
