A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO
The ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology has been founded in the early 1980s. The study group aims to study music cultures and musical practices, including song and dance, from the past and from all over the world. The study field combines musicological and archaeological perspectives, and includes an array of related disciplines. The homepage of the study group provides information on symposia and publications (currently under construction). For a brief description of the history of the study group, see the Introduction in Music & Ritual: Bridging Material & Living Cultures (Publications of the ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology, Vol. 1), ed. by R. Jiménez / R. Till / M. Howell (Ekho Verlag, Berlin 2014).
