The hills are alive, with the sound of music! With songs they have sung with a history for thousands of years actually! Music, the instruments, and its impact on daily life has left a mark throughout time and it is archaeomusicologists that study that history. Though music itself is intangible there are those who reconstruct the texts and objects left behind. Tuning life back into the legacy of music. Joining the Indy Team today is Dr. Richard Dumbrill the founder of International Conference of Near Eastern Archaeomusiocology. Together we will pluck out particular points of interest in the field of study. Get ready to jam.
