Musical Anthropology

A Conversation with Elisabeth Waldo

(p.138) 7 Musical Anthropology
Tide Was Always High

Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker

University of California Press

This chapter presents the author's conversation with composer, violinist, and musical anthropologist Elisabeth Waldo, which took place October 17, 2015, at her home, the Rancho Cordillera del Norte, in Northridge. The author suggests that Waldo's work, differed from other works that were classified under the label “exotica” in that she went deeper into the archaeological and anthropological aspects of the music rather than simply making the music sound exotic in a general sense. As the author investigated her music further, he realized that she took this approach on many of her other records as well, all while showing off her symphonic abilities as well as her skills on the violin.
