    Project Description

    Neglected Indigenous peoples are emerging around the world, raising questions about how to overcome their
    stigmatisation and lack of opportunity. This ethnographic project aims to document how and to what extent one
    Indigenous group in the post-Suharto era of regional autonomy in Indonesia is improving its status through
    affirmative political action based on its traditional musical arts, philosophy and Islamic beliefs. With a novel
    ethnomusicological methodology it will delineate the stylistic identity of their traditional, new and popular musical
    arts and youth culture, and will theorise about the changing meanings of culture and Islam among this
    marginalised people.
