(p.iii) American Gamelan and the Ethnomusicological Imagination

The chapter examines how the earliest generation of Balinese American teachers (born from the 1940s to the 1960s) were educated and how their experiences eventually brought them to work long-term in North America. Its central case study is Balinese gamelan teacher I Made Lasmawan, whose formal and informal educational experiences are contextualized within broader institutional structures and historical events that brought foreign musician-scholars to teach in American universities. The chapter concludes that musical and pedagogical lineages created by such teachers both reflect and embody systematic developments in the building of transnational musical lineages and performing and academic ecosystems.
