Ethnomusicology Musicology

Ethnomusicology is the study of music as culture. As an academic discipline, it is an outgrowth of systematic musicology, which combined methods of Cultural Anthropology with those of Western Musicology. What denotes Ethnomusicology is less the type of music studied, but the focus on the relation of music to its cultural and social aspects. Though ethnomusicology began as a splinter group from the American Musicological Society in the early 1950s, it currently is practiced in many forms worldwide.
