123 Global Music

For Professor Sparke's home page and links to some of his publications click here

Below are listed links to the online music that students have suggested for playing in the period before class when everyone is coming into the lecture hall.

Any kind of music can be suggested so long as it satisfies two simple rules:

1) That musically it represents some sort of mixing of different musical genres from different parts of the globe; and,

2) That any lyrics or video sequences or melodic themes somehow address, either literally, metaphorically or melodically issues relating to globalization.
