Where they sing solo: Accounting for cross-cultural variation in collective music-making in theories of music evolution
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 44 (2021)
AbstractCollective, synchronous music-making is far from ubiquitous across traditional, small-scale societies. We describe societies that lack collective music and offer hypotheses to help explain this cultural variation. Without identifying the factors that explain variation in collective music-making across these societies, theories of music evolution based on social bonding or coalition signaling remain incomplete.
