Abstract

The article describe the first results of the project "Music and migration" the author is working on since 2014. The project is investigating self-representation and expression through the music of economic migrant communities and refugees and asylum seekers in Cremona and its neighbouring provinces (Mantua, Modena and Piacenza). Through the documentation of the music performed and listened to in different contexts and the study of how music intervenes in the public and private spaces of immigration in contemporary Cremona and its surroundings, we are trying to understand migrants’ attitudes toward the host culture and their own culture, and the possibility of empowering these persons by giving a public space to their cultural musical expressions. The article offers the first reflection about the results of all the lines of research conducted: transcultural education; music and rite; asylum seekers.
