Abstract

Dedicated to the memory of Alexis Poindipenda, lead singer of Jemaa, who died in a tragic accident in 1994. David Goldsworthy's study of the development of contemporary kaneka music in New Caledonia emphasises the manner in which, in specific local contexts, contemporary music can be created and propagated as an means of expressing contemporary cultural ·- and political-difference despite the stylistic profusion and (supposed) inclusiveness of world music/world beat as late 20th Century categories and frames of reference
