Background

Study Group for Musics of East Asia (MEA)

The study group for Musics of East Asia (hereafter MEA) was founded in

who share an interest in the musics of East Asia, broadly defined musically and
geographically, including East Asian music in the diaspora as well as indigenous,
transplanted, and syncretic music within East Asian countries. Other performing
arts related to music will also be part of the subjects of study.
