Abstract
The aim of this study is to investigate how traditions are transmitted from one generation to the next in the Uyghur ethnic music tradition of current China. The research questions are: How does the transmitting of knowledge look like in the Uyghur tradition in an informal and in a formal context? Also how does the traditional music development look like and which role does the music have in the society today? In qualitative interviews I have searched for answers to these questions. The study has mastery and tradition as a central theme. The result shows several interesting themes concerning the strong role of the Uyghur traditional music in people’s lives today - both as carrier of historic events and as a moral and developmental force.
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Denna studie söker svar på frågan hur traditionsöverföringen ser ut i den uyghuriska folkmusiken i dagens Kina. Med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer, samt en observation av en instrumentallektion i ett uyghuriskt traditionellt instrument, har jag reflekterat över kunskapsöverföring, tradition och förändring. Uppsatsen tar upp mästarlära och tradition som ett centralt tema och i resultatet kommer flera intressanta teman fram angående kulturens viktiga roll i den uyghuriska traditionen - både som historiebärare av viktiga händelser i folkets liv, men även som moralisk och fostrande kraft.
