MUS 203 Music and Social Protest (CD)

MUS 203 - Music and Social Protest (CD) (4)

Music can be a vehicle for social change and singing songs can comment on as well as affect changes within society. Using multicultural case studies from the US and Latin America, we consider how musicians and activists use musical sounds and performance practices as tools to empower people. The class contains a historical survey/lecture component and a performance lab component (no prior musical experience required). Offered each Spring.
