Musicking Citizenship

Klette Bøhler explores a new concept of musicking citizenship inspired by recent developments in community-based music therapy and ethnomusicology. In developing musicking citizenship, he draws on earlier work on affective citizenship ‘musisk medborgerskap’, active citizenship, and research on music and politics. Klette-Bøhler applies the concept to ethnographic studies carried out in Cuba, Brazil, Mozambique and Norway over the last ten years to illuminate how musicking citizenship invites us to rethink how music enables voice, empowerment and social inclusion among disenfranchised youths.
