MEDIA REVIEWS

"In her preface to Made in Greece, the editor, anthropologist Dafni Tragaki, proclaims the book's ambitious task, namely `to question established notions of "the popular"' and to `destabilize certainties about what is labelled "Greek popular music" and how we make sense of it' (xi). As it turns out, the book rises quite successfully to the challenge, exposing the Greek case study as particularly conducive to a critical re-evaluation of the term. ... Overall, Made in Greece succeeds in painting a diverse picture of `the popular' in Greek music, while issuing a theoretically-minded challenge to this very category as a substantive, globally-commensurable form." - Oded Erez, Ethnomusicology Forum
