Making Music Indigenous

Joshua Tucker

University of Chicago Press

"Wood and Work" focuses on the chinlili, the small guitar-like instrument that is the mainstay of chimaycha performance, and on the most influential instrument maker who constructs them. It describes how he deploys in his instrument making a lifetime of musical training, guitar-making apprenticeship, environmental knowledge, and ideological convictions about indigenous distinctiveness, all of which make his workshop a significant node of transduction between past and future notions of indigenous identity.
