|Description||This multimedia collection focuses on Cañari music in the highlands of southern Ecuador. Its primary contents are audio and video recordings of Cañari celebrations featuring music collected in 2016 by ethnomusicologist Allison Adrian. Central themes include music, ethnography, gender, religion, mythology, and history. Recordings were made in the following locations: Cañar, Sisid, Juncal, Zhud, and Gun Grande. The materials consist of approximately 81 hours of audio and video recordings in WAV and MP4 formats. Dr. Adrian’s research during this period was supported by a U.S. Fulbright Scholar Research Award and a sabbatical award funded by St. Catherine University. |
