University of Exeter
These recordings are presented as outcomes of research investigation on the role of improvisation as dialogue between oral music practitioners from different cultures, comparing modes of practice between the subject of this research and other similar collaborations. Ideas for developing good practice through processes of familiarisation, learning and communication are discussed alongside issues surrounding musical identity. With regard to creative outcomes, an attempt is made to devise a model whereby cross-cultural collaborations can provide benefits to both participants and their wider communities.
