On Soundscapes in Jerusalem

Sound cultures in the Old City of Jerusalem

This episode explores sound cultures in the Old City of Jerusalem, an ancient and holy city home to numerous religious and ethnic communities. Can we encounter the other through sound and song along the streets of today's Jerusalem? How resonant is this encounter? What can sound tell us about the politics of space? Featuring Abigail Wood.

Dr Abigail Wood was awarded a PhD in ethnomusicology at Cambridge University and is currently a senior lecturer in the music department at the University of Haifa, Israel.
