The book to be featured at this event is called Music Glocalization: Heritage and Innovation in a Digital Age (edited by David Hebert and Mikolaj Rykowski). This book describes how the experience of music has changed as a result of new technologies and evolving attitudes toward the human condition. Cambridge Analytica/Facebook and music preferences, didjeridoos of PVC pipe, Eastern vs. Western influences from contemporary Uzbek music to the compositions of Estonian composer Arvo Part, musical traditions of Sumatra (Indonesia), and how Wagner transcends the stereotypes of pro-Nazi art - these are just a few of the topics raised in the book Music Glocalization.

Prof. Hebert’s co-author for this book – Dr. Mikolaj Rykowski – is coming from Poland to participate, and together they will present the main ideas from the book, offering brief readings and live performances of songs that directly relate to themes in the book. They are joined by two other musicians, Mai Goto and Aleksandra Rykowska.

Drinks and snacks will be served, and the audience will also have a chance to win a free copy of the latest book.
