"I used Bright Balkan Morning with a Music 101 class when it
first came out with some trepidation, given the book's expense and
complexity, and was delighted that two separate groups found it
stimulating, absorbing, and very helpful in understanding world
music issues and the ethnography of a particular music community.
The soundscape turned out to be an excellent accompaniment to the
multilayered text."
