About the Author

Adelaida Reyes is a leading ethnomusicologist and Professor Emerita of Music at New Jersey City University. During her years of teaching at Columbia University, she led the development of urban ethnomusicology as a field of study.


"This is a ground-breaking book, long overdue in the telling. Adelaida Reyes's study is a testament to the importance of firsthand ethnographic work, addressing big issues... Reyes argues that music-making is central to the ongoing construction of differences within Vietnamese-American communities and she demonstrates that music, particularly singing, looks back nostalgically to pre-1975 Vietnam as well as forward to new Vietnamese American identities." --Deborah Wong, University of California, Riverside " incisive study of Vietnamese and their music-making as refugees in the US...a nuanced ethno-musicological study..." --American Studies "...excels as an ethnographic study of the emergent meanings of music of Vietnamese communities in different social contexts. It is also a good example of how to conceptualize human experiences in and through music." --Asian Music
