Summary In the musical worlds of Cambodian-American mohori musicians, alternative Swedish rock bands, Inuit drum dance workshop students, Japanese Imogawa Festival participants, Scottish 'Deep Sea Mission' gospel hymnsingers, and the legendary Pete Seeger, participation plays a key role. Taking Part in Music: Case Studies in Ethnomusicology explores crucial aspects of the ways in which participating in making music is important in these and many other contexts worldwide. Initially presented at the 27th meeting of the European Seminar in Ethnomusicology (ESEM) held at the Elphinstone Institute, University of Aberdeen, Scotland, in September 2011, these twenty chapters offer diverse contributions to the study of musical participation. Through consideration of musical issues, sociality and relationships, identity and belonging, and place and space, and through a detailed study of the dimensions of musical participation within the contemporary Swedish context, these chapters are a vivid reminder of why musical participation remains an important topic worthy of serious study.
