Servant, partner or guide: What’s the connection between music and politics?

With exemplary texts, the book tries to underline that music and politics are not worlds apart. On the contrary – musical practise plays a manifold role in social contexts: as part of our memory, as right-wing rock or rock against right-wing tendencies, in pedagogic connotations or local empowerment.

Edited by Dr. Ute Canaris, this collection of texts is aimed at making known the richness of musical and lyrical expressions dedicated to social issues – political and cultural – and their presentations in creative projects and unusual contexts.
