Julie Licata Playing Gedang Malayu

You are cordially invited to luncheon with the Oneonta Faculty Convivium on Thursday, December 3, noon to 1:00 p.m., in Fine Arts, Room M201Julie Licata, Associate Professor of Music, will present a talk titled, Bringing Minangkabau Culture to my Classroom:  It’s About More Than Just Music.”

Abstract: Music and culture across the world is dynamic and fluid. With the ever-present and fragile balance between tradition and innovation, the Minangkabau music culture in West Sumatra, Indonesia is no exception. A snapshot of Minangkabau music culture today will show, among other things, a tireless excitement for innovation, the integration of Western music styles and tunings with ancient instruments, the expanding definition of what it means to be a musician, a lively culture of music criticism, and a strong desire to preserve traditions and cultivate national and regional identities.  This presentation will show how I have attempted to incorporate my research of and experience with Minangkabau music (West Sumatra, Indonesia) into a student-led semester-long classroom activity that teaches students not only about the sounds of Minangkabau music, but what it means to participate in music-making and music-listening in West Sumatra, Indonesia. As part of the presentation, you will see several short videos of musical styles from West Sumatra, and a performance of an original composition by students in my World Percussion Ensemble.

Seating is limited.  To reserve a seat please call X2517 prior to November 30.  Vegetarian meals are available.
