Call for Papers | Music traditions in the 21st century: new practices,  contexts and challengesOnline Colloquium | 20-21 October 2023 universe of music traditions involves various practices, genres  and styles associated with rural and urban contexts that have  undergone significant transformations in the last twenty years. These  transformations are due, in large part, to sociocultural and  technological changes, which include the impacts of digitization on  music production and the reconfiguration of the music industry. In  particular, the impact of the market for so-called « folk music »,  « world music » and « early music » is felt in the practices of musicians  within this universe, either through the emergence of new productions  that merge traditional music from various sources and nationalities  and of these with other genres; or by promoting the integration of  these musicians in transnational circuits of music festivals and  fairs. This universe also includes increasingly more artists who,  either through the use of traditional instruments or through the  influence of texts, melodies, rhythms and arrangements, are inspired  by these genres and recreate them in original compositions. Many of  these musicians are resorting to new independent modes of music  production in the margins of the music industry, which coexist with  more or less institutionalized local practices of state, regional and  municipal support, as well as links to academia.This colloquium aims to debate the new practices, contexts and  challenges faced by agents who participate in this universe from  different perspectives and disciplines. Seeking a debate that is  intended to be as wide as possible, the meeting will welcome  presentations from areas such as ethnomusicology, anthropology,  sociology and popular music studies, including contributions from  researchers, musicians, producers, performers, journalists and  collectors and/or other cultural agents.People interested in participating in this online event can send their  proposals within the following topics, while it is also possible to  include other related topics:
