Memory and Pedagogy of Sikh Music: Identity and Clash of Histories

For the Hofstra lecture series on Music, Memory and Identity, the renowned musician and scholar Bhai Baldeep Singh will discuss the transformation in Sikh (musical) praxis and self-understanding by influential reform movements under the pressure of colonial and then nationalist forces. The talk touches upon the clash of oral and written accounts on the Sikh tradition, and the strategies to preserve its musical heritage in danger of disappearing.

The event is organized by the Sardarni Kuljit Kaur Chair in Sikh Studies and the Department of Religion, in collaboration with the Sardarni Harbans Kaur Chair in Sikh Musicology.

 

Date: Wednesday, November 14

The talk will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Reception at 6 p.m.
