Editorial Introduction

Hillegonda C Rietveld


Over the years, IASPM has actively branched out from an Anglo-American perspective to both international and transnational conferences and collaborations. This is well illustrated by IASPM Journal, now in its sixth year of publication. In this issue, Isabelle Marc follows shifts and changes of ‘travelling music’, Inhwa So investigates Korean cultural dynamics through gugak girl group MIJI, Stephen Wilford assesses the political legacies of Algerian musicians ‘cheb Hasni’ Chakroun and Lounès Matoub, while Elina Hytönen-Ng offers a new model in understanding the multiple roles of a small jazz venue promoter in the UK. Plus nine book reviews that further underpin the wide reach of popular music studies.
