The founders of Mountains of Tongues will also be conversation with Liza Premiyak of The Calvert Journal about their first articles and the Caucasus’ cultural contrasts of urban/rural, modern/traditional, and ethnic/national reflected in the complex nature of its music.
About Caucasus All Frequency
Caucasus All Frequency is a not-for-profit journal promoting holistic and inclusive approaches to music in the Caucasus.
Our writers work to challenge dichotomies of the “urban/rural,” the “modern/traditional,” and the “ethnic/national” and seek to highlight the complex and intersectional nature of music in the contemporary Caucasus. Featured topics pinpoint and directly challenge hegemonic and exclusionary narratives while emphasising people’s lived interactions with music.
Contributors include both local and international musicians, writers, anthropologists, and ethnomusicologists.
