For most of its history, ethnomusicology neglected the urban area
as field of research. Not until the early 1970s did this
situation begin to change with the discovery of popular music as
an urban phenomenon that also called attention to its socio-
cultural context.

The urban area has been and is a multicultural area because
contemporary urban centres inevitably attract migration. This
also found its expression in ethnomusicological studies.

As Bruno Nettl observed in his article "New Directions in
Ethnomusicology" on ethnomusicological research in the urban area
(1992): "In carrying out these studies, ethnomusicologists have
been made particularly aware of the importance of music as a
cultural emblem, as something that is used by a population group
to express its uniqueness to other groups, bringing about
cohesion but also serving as a medium of intercultural

In the proposed symposium we aim to explore methodological and
theoretical issues and to present studies of different urban
settings of comparative purposes.

Vienna and current research projects on the musical diversity in
the capital of Austria will be one focus. Studies from other
parts of the world - Lisbon, Berlin, New York, Chicago, Calcutta
- will foster a global perspective. Ethnomusicologists from
Europe and the USA have been invited to participate by giving
presentations and joining the panel discussions. One final
Roundtable will explore ethnomusicological contributions to the
management of urban musical diversity. A concert will present
some of Vienna's minority music activities.
