Building on the foundations of the First International Conference on Analytical Approaches to World Music, AAWM 2012 continues to explore the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present, that lie outside the purview of Western Art Music from the broadest possible array of theoretical, cultural, historical and analytical perspectives. By bringing together theorists, ethnomusicologists, musicologists, and performers of diverse cultural and academic orientations, AAWM 2012 provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for cultivating new modes of musical description and understanding capable of navigating the vast multicultural soundscape of the twenty-first century.
