This volume stresses the value of comparative microstudies that are not concerned primarily with the flow of capital and neoliberal politics, but which take forms of interconnection, within and beyond South Asia, very seriously. Local, in this volume, signals attention to small scale, micro-level, musical and bodily processes; sites of interaction and transmission; attention to the familiar in unfamiliar ways. Theorizing the local means paying attention to what constitutes a local musical universe, to processes of acquiring knowledge, and to forms of knowledge implicit in performing and experiencing music.
