Analysis Of World Music

Your term assignment consists of a written analysis of a world music example. You may select a music example based on a world culture not covered in class, or you may select a music example from one of the cultures covered in class, but you cannot write an analysis on any of the genres, musicians, or music examples already covered in any of the lessons or the discussion boards.  (If you write on any of the genres, musicians, or music examples already covered in any of the lessons or the discussion boards, you will receive a failing grade for the assignment.  You are also not permitted to analyze a Western classical or popular music example.) 

Your written analysis should consist of approximately 800-1000 words and address the three aspects of Merriam’s Model as they pertain to your musical example.  (Please include a link to the music video in your analysis as well as a list of sources for your work.)
