This book is concerned with the performance and reception of popular music and song by Tibetan refugees living in north India. To explore the ways in which cultural boundaries are understood, negotiated, and enacted by Tibetan refugees, this book largely focuses on nontraditional music that has found a receptive audience in this diasporic community. Both the content and design of this book are informed by the theme of echoes, as both a theoretical notion and as experience.

Keywords:   Tibetan refugees, popular music, north India, diasporic community, echoes
