This volume is a festschrift to mark the 65th birthday of Raimund Vogels, who has been professor of ethnomusicology at the University of Music, Drama and Media Hanover for twenty years and director of the Center for World Music at the University of Hildesheim Foundation for ten years. During these decades he has, as a ‘foreman’ and ‘bridge builder’, been engaged in numerous projects and activities at the nexus of research, cultural safeguarding and music education in the field of ethnomusicology. His understanding of ethnomusicology as a socio-political practice that regards music as a tool for cultural diversity and social integration has provided important impulses both within and outside the discipline and has had a lasting impact on his academic offspring. Diggin' Up Music – Ethnomusicology as Building Site is a collection of contributions from his former and current doctoral students and research assistants, in which the diverse topics, approaches and perspectives of ethnomusicological work find expression.
