Brand new Powerpoints for all chapters of WORLD MUSIC here!!

Hot off the press! My new Powerpoints for the version of the world music course I’ll be teaching this summer (2016) using  WORLD MUSIC: TRADITIONS AND TRANSFORMATIONS. I’ve gone through to ensure that all the YouTube links in these slides are live, etc., but if you discover any dead links or other problems, please email me at to let me know. Thanks, and enjoy! ~Michael
