Romani music: Music – Memory - Minorities - Date: May 26 to June 1, 2019; One-week course organized in the framework of the Khamoro Romani Festival, intended for university students. The morning lectures will focus on the relationship of music to memory, specifically in the case of minority communities. Collective memory is -- through (collective) acts of remembering -- one of the basic axes which bind and strengthen communities. Nevertheless, much more than by the past, remembering is formed by the present: by the needs of those who remember, and also by the available "materials of remembering." This is even true of institutions of memory (archives, museums...): they are shaped by the needs of their times. What are the factors which form remembering in Romani communities? The students become acquainted with the main areas in which Roma participated in the creation of distinctive music styles and through several case examples with the specificity of Romani music remembrance – its characteristics, stakeholders, and the influence of the majority culture. Study materials are available on-line for students. On Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, students will take part in the Music – memory – minorities international colloquium. HERE (special link) In the evenings, students will attend festival concerts.
