Abstract:The Gulf has been the site of deep cultural exchanges through the millennia. This diverse heritage is reflected in the contemporary music traditions in instrumentation, form, structure, and style. The Gulf has also been the site of tremendous change over the last century with the decline of the pearling industry and subsequent oil boom, these changes have altered the performance contexts of traditional music. This dissertation focuses on the effects of these transnational and economic influences on the musical traditions associated with the maritime and urban communities of the region. This work also problematizes how these traditions function both as a symbol and as a lived experience of the past. Fieldwork and archival research for this project were conducted in Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait in 2005-06. The three main goals of the dissertation are to: (1) present a broad survey of musical practice and traditions in the region (2) study performance practice and how it has adapted to changing performance contexts and (3) situate the study of Gulf music into the wider context of Gulf and Indian Ocean cultural space studies. The first part of the dissertation lays the foundation for this work, outlining the cultural context, method, methodology, relevant genres and history pertinent to the study. The next three ethnographic chapters are case studies of changes in the performance context of traditional Gulf music. The first describes a contemporary musical gathering at a dar, or fraternal lodge. The second illustrates the transition of sea music from the work and dar context to a folkloric stage presentation. The last case study profiles the beginning of mass mediated music in the Gulf and the role of state radio stations in broadcasting national narratives.
