Abstract and Keywords
This article has been commissioned as part of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Music Revival edited by Caroline Bithell and Juniper Hill. This chapter addresses the revival of musical life in places recovering from natural or humanmade disasters such as earthquakes or wars. It argues that every such revival has distinctive attributes based on the local culture and on local artists’ responses to the situation that has necessitated the revival. Scholars need to take these factors into account when developing a research methodology. Through three case studies—posttsunami, postconflict Aceh; posttsunami, postconflict Sri Lanka; and post-Taliban Afghanistan—this chapter explores the ways artists have engaged in reconciliation or recovery efforts, using the arts to help overcome trauma, restore morale, and maintain peace. It also examines the nature of the arts education systems that have been established to cater for the needs of victims of all ages. The chapter concludes by outlining a preliminary methodology for research into musical revivals following major catastrophes, bans, or neglect.
