"It is delightful to see the results of the authors' decades-long study of Palestinian Arab music. Working on their systematic collection of songs recorded in the 1960s and using a variety of analytic tools, Dalia Cohen and Ruth Katz here provide a remarkable example of methodological and analytic sophistication that will delight those interested in the analysis of sounds and in ethnomusicological methodology."--Anthony Seeger"Anthony Seeger" (04/18/2005)
"Palestinian Arab Music is a milestone in scholarship. With great sophistication Dalia Cohen and Ruth Katz apply modern technological tools to decipher, measure, and describe musical Palestinian performances, and thereby address issues of aesthetics, of individual creativity and traditional conventions, regional differentiation, and contextual factors in the production of music. Their quantification of qualitative musical values avoids the mechanic analysis and insightfully describes Arab singing as a multi-dimensional cultural performance. The application of their method to musical performances in other cultures and other regions will open up new horizons in the study of folklore and traditional music."--Dan Ben-Amos"Dan Ben-Amos" (04/06/2005)
