Summary
  • "The essays in this volume address music's potential as a therapeutic source. The contributors approach the study of music healing from social, cultural and historical backgrounds, and in so doing provide perspectives on the subject which complement the wealth of existing literature by practitioners." "The forms of music therapy explored in the book exemplify the well-being that can be experienced as a result of participating in any type of musical or artistic performance. Case studies include examples from the Bolivian Andes, Africa and Western Europe, as well as an assessment of the role of Islamic traditions in Western practices."
  • "These case studies introduce some new, and possibly unfamiliar, models of musical healing to music therapists, ethnomusicologists and anthropologists."--Jacket
