In an age of globalization and rapidly changing musical landscapes, social
scientists from different countries and disciplines attempt to analyze the
contemporary cultural dynamics of some of the current ethnical musical
styles with respect to their commont traits.Their approach is based on the
conceptions of hybridty and hybridization as they are currently discussed
in the cultural and social sciences as well as in musicology itself.
Alluding to the labyrinth as a metaphor of the revelation of complex
ramifications, it is hoped that this approach will provide a new
theoretical and methodological access to the explanation of recent
processes of cultural transformation within the field of popular music.
