Music Education and Minority Groups Cultural and Musical Identities in the "Newer" South Africa: White Afrikaners and Indians
Joseph, Dawn; van Niekerk, Caroline
Intercultural Education, v18 n5 p487-499 Dec 2007
Music Education, as well as cultural and musical identities are all being renegotiated, post-Apartheid, within the so-called "newer" rather than the commonly known "new" South Africa. The developing situation with certain minority groups is particularly interesting. Education in general has undergone much change since the first democratic elections in 1994: music education specifically has been affected by such change in terms of content, delivery and assessment. Within the South African context, cultural and musical identities are often intertwined with language, racial and even tribal identities, and discussing one implies the others. We are particularly interested here in the role of formal Music Education in relation to white Afrikaners and Indians as they renegotiate their cultural development, including musical aspects.
