Musical repertories will include traditional music of the past (e.g., slave songs, songs of railroad workers), traditional music of the present (e.g., rural Appalachian, Cajun, Native American), and popular music genres (from rock and rap to a cappella jazz). The exploration of various genres will be integrated into a discussion of folklore, religion, ideology and history. Fall.
