Abstract

Recently, local attempts to 'self-exoticise' and create globally-influenced, locally-inflected musical hybrids have been analysed (Mitsui, 1998; Tan, 1998). Jonas and Amapola Baes' study in this issue extends these analyses by examining the development, and industrial and aesthetic implications, of this approach in the Philippines.
