Episode 7 of Ethnomusicology Today, “Japanese Chindon-ya and Anti-Nuclear Power Protests with Marié Abe,” is now available on iTunes and on the SEM website.

In this episode we talk with Marié Abe, whose article "Sounding Against Nuclear Power in Post-3.11 Japan: Resonances of Silence and Chindon-ya," was published in the Spring/Summer 2016 issue of the journal, Ethnomusicology. Abe explores the Japanese musical advertisement practice chindon-ya and how it has become politicized as the sounds of anti-nuclear street protests after the 3.11 nuclear disaster. Abe examines the tensions between chindon-ya’s role in street protests and the socially mandated practice of the silence of jishuku. Marié Abe is assistant professor of music at Bonton University.
