There are now over 14 million refugees worldwide,1 “a staggering mass larger than the population of most of the countries of the world” (Smyser 1987: 3). Assuming that music is part of the cultural life of these populations, do they—as refugees and as a group distinct from other migrants—qualify for ethnomusicological attention? This is the question that this paper intends to address.
The opposition of tradition to innovation is a commonplace in studies of culture. So too is the association of tradition with cultural forms in native environments and with forms that evolve so slowly that they are thought to be unchanging. Through contrast with seemingly unchanging or stable forms, innovation becomes identifiable.
In the last decade, the emergence and rapid growth of ethnomusicological interest in urban phenomena has stirred up a fresh sense of methodological and conceptual inadequacy in the face of current needs. Confronted repeatedly by the complexities of the urban situation, we are pressed to reassess the resources with which to meet new problems and new demands. New questions are being asked; old ones are being reformulated.
