Welcome to the site for the 2011 RMA Caribbean and Latin American Music (CLAM) Study Day
which took place on Saturday, the 12th of November 2011
The University of Huddersfield
School of Music, Humanities and Media,
Guest Speaker: Dr Henry Stobart (Royal Holloway, University of London)
The study of music from the Caribbean and Latin America has tended in the past to remain the preserve of ethnomusicologists and those writing on popular music.This study day was organised to highlight this area of academic research by focussing on practice-led research. In addition to historiographic and ethnomusicological studies on Caribbean and Latin American music forms, we incorporated performance as a main element. Alongside paper presentations we had lecture recitals and short performances. The aim of this event was to bring together researchers from the fields of performance, musicology and ethnomusicology to enable new ways of researching this subject.
This study day would not have gone ahead without the financial, intellectual and administrative support from the RMA and the University of Huddersfield. We would therefore like to graciously thank the RMA, and The School of Music at the University of Huddersfield for their involvement. We would also like to recognise
Dr. Lisa Colton (University of Huddersfield) for her assistance in all aspects of the day, guidance and expertise.
Stewart Worthy (University of Huddersfield) for his technical assistance and Skype administration.
Susan Baghurst (RMA) for her time, financial administration, and accounts balancing.
Dr Henry Stobart (Royal Holloway, University of London) for being our guest speaker and for tirelessly championing the study of Caribbean and Latin American Music in the UK through his regular LAMS seminar days in London
