Ethno-Using Borders as Bridges
Abstract: The classrooms of today represents a variety of different cultures, a facet that is often problematized. This research explores how a multicultural context can be used as resource, instead of an obstacle. By investigating this theme, I have been conducting research on the concept of Ethno-camps – trying to identify the key aspects of these, and discuss whether or not these key aspects can be transferred to other forms of music education. The qualitative data for the study was collected between 2015-2016 and is composed of interviews, participant observations and a visual ethnography. Recurring themes of importance found in the data is aspects of cultural diversity, environment, social interaction between participants, learning traditional music by ear or having a peer-learning approach to teaching music. The results discussion features the erudition what the key aspects of Ethno are, but also that an important aspect is the interplay between these aspects. Considering that all these facets are in constant interplay with each other, the true effects of an Ethno could be limited to its own context – thereby making it difficult to be transmitted in its entirety to other settings.
