Episode 4 of Ethnomusicology Today, “Bollywood Dance Economies with Anna Morcom,” is now available on iTunes and on the SEM website.

Episode #4:

In this episode we talk with Anna Morcom, whose article “Terrains of Bollywood: (Neoliberal) Capitalism and the Transformation of Cultural Economies” was published in the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of the journal Ethnomusicology. Morcom explores changes in post-1990’s Indian dance culture. She contrasts the Bollywood dance craze in the middle classes with the rise of less culturally-accepted dance bars, bars in which dancers were showered with money to perform seductively. As a consequence of neoliberal capitalist ideals and the class disparity between those who worked in dance bars and those who opposed them, these bars have faced numerous legal challenges despite their significant contribution to the Indian dance economy.
