This chapter reviews empirical studies of music and emotion that involve a cross-cultural comparison, and outlines prevailing views on the implications of such studies. It begins by discussing some theoretical implications of research on cross-cultural commonalities in the association between music and emotion. Section 27.2 reviews the central questions arising from cross-cultural research on emotion. Section 27.3 outlines the cue-redundancy model, developed to account for cross-cultural similarities and differences in the expression and recognition of emotion in music. Section 27.4 presents a broader framework for summarizing existing data on emotional communication, referred to as fractionating emotional systems (FES). FES extend the cue-redundancy model by accounting for similarities and differences in emotional communication, not only across cultures but also across the auditory channels of music and speech prosody. Section 27.5 reviews cross-cultural studies of music and emotion, while section 27.6 reviews cross-cultural studies of emotion in speech. Section 27.7 identifies some future prospects for the cross-cultural study of music and emotion.
