Keywords: Endangered Music, Traditions, Minorities, Community Development, Health, Communication, Questionnaire, Assessment
AbstractEthnomusicologist Todd Saurman considers language endangerment, musical endangerment, and community involvement as he looks at Catherine Grant's recent book, Musical Endangerment: How Language Maintenance Can Help. Todd feels strongly that music is a key to community health and well-being, especially as in its role in communication. He recommends Grant's book as a good discussion-starter, while also suggesting other points to keep in mind when working with minority communities and weakening musical traditions.
