Among the identity studies, however, the foci have varied a great deal.

The subjects addressed by the authors include the influence of new technologies, modes of transmission, intercultural processes, and intellectual property implications. The authors discuss musical styles associated with nation-specific and intertribal repertoires, popular music genres such as country and hip hop, and a wide array of hybrid expressive cultural practices involving not only music but also theatre or dance.
