Regula Burckhardt Qureshi

Oxford University Press

Discipleship is examined as a relational, multileveled, and highly contextual process of enculturation through the chapter's observations and experiences with hereditary bowed lute (sārangī) players and their biradaris. The chapter contends that discipleship has contributed to a counter-colonial ethnomusicology that has relevance beyond Hindustani music studies.

Keywords:   discipleship, sārangī, hereditary musicians, birādarī, Hindustani music, colonialism, enculturation
