Perspective 2.1 - Comparing Japanese and Indian Music

Here are two videos for you to watch. You may want to download the Elements of Music presentation from Term 1 and review the elements so you can discuss them in your assignment.

"Sakura" performed by Fuyuki Enokido

"Pancham Se Gara" performed by Anoushka Shankar

Assignment 2.1 - Comparing Japanese and Indian Music

Your task is to write a 2 or 3 page report comparing and contrasting Classical Japanese and Indian music. You will be using the performances of Fuyuki Enokido and Anoushka Shankar as your examples.

Choose at least four elements of music to compare.

Your final paragraph should be a conclusion that explores how solo musicians help preserve their traditional cultural music while performing in a way that still engages their audience today.

You can include some facts that you have learned about Japanese and Indian music to illustrate your argument. Be specific about the things you see and include a time stamp (minutes:seconds) to pinpoint certain things you see in the video. If you do outside research from other books or websites, please include that information in a Bibliography at the end.
