The Changing Same in Transcultural Musicking

2016-7-15 (Fri) 13:00 - 18:00

We are proud to announce that we will have a symposium featuring a special lecture by Kevin Fellezs (Assistant Professor, Columbia University) at Toyonaka Campus, Osaka University.

Birds of Fire: Jazz, Rock, Funk and the Creation of Fusion, a book by Professor Fellezs on fusion music, has been highly praised in recent years as prominent research findings in the field of popular music research. For this lecture, we have invited Prof. Fellezs, who has been performing surveys in Japan since last year, to talk about the Hawaiian slack-key guitar scene in Japan.

We will also have a roundtable discussion by Kevin Fellezs, Toshiyuki Ohwada (Professor, Keio University), Sota Takahashi (Lecturer, Fukuoka Jo Gakuin University) and Yusuke Wajima (Associate Professor, Osaka University), and a short speech session by young researchers.

Prof. Fellezs will give his lecture in English, but Japanese materials will be distributed at the lecture. There will also be Japanese/English support during the discussion, so we hope a wide variety of participants attend this lecture from both inside the realm of academia and out.
