Malay Film Music of the Independence Era
Few would argue that the heyday of Malay film music was in the 1950s and 1960s as pop culture began to filter in from the West to meet an increasingly confident national culture emerging after years of colonial rule. The result was not a clash, but, surprisingly, a fusion which produced a whole new culture of its own. In this book a prominent ethnomusicologist has produced the first in depth study of the phenomenon. 387 pages with a glossary, bibliography, music scores and an index.
