Richard K. Wolf's The Voice in the Drum to be released October 2013


[CLICK TO VIEW TRAILER]

Based on extensive field research in India and Pakistan, this new study, written in the form of a novel, examines the ways drumming and voices interconnect over vast areas of South Asia and considers what it means for instruments to be voice-like and carry textual messages in particular contexts.

This is the story of a family led by Ahmed Ali Khan, a North Indian ruler who revels in the glories of 19th century life, when many religious communities joined together harmoniously in grand processions. His journalist son Muharram Ali obsessively scours the subcontinent in pursuit of a music he naively hopes will dissolve religious and political barriers. The story charts the breakdown of this naiveté.

Welcome!

The Harvard University Department of Music is devoted to the study and practice of music, and exists to provide a first-rate musical education that gives students advanced skills in music as well as knowledge of music history and repertory. Collaboration, creativity, scholarship and musicianship all figure prominently in the department's mission and practice. We offer both an undergraduate and a graduate program. Undergraduates receive an AB with a concentration in music, and graduate students complete a PhD program in historical musicology, ethnomusicology, theory, or composition. There is also a small AM degree program in Performance Practice, and a dual-degree (AB/MM) program that is a collaboration with New England Conservatory. The Music Department sponsors numerous concerts, colloquia, lectures and special music events each month, which are free to students and the public. [Read MORE]
