Wang Luobin: ´Folk Song King of the Northwest or Song Thief?

          Rachel Harris   School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

Copyright, Representation, and Chinese Folk Songs - Harris 31 (3): 381 - Modern China


This article discusses the controversy surrounding the feted twentieth-century Chinese composer and folk song collector Wang Luobin. Wang’s relationship with the peoples and music of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region illuminates several aspects of Han-minority relations, in particular the consumption of Otherness and the contesting of identities. The controversy also illuminates problems surrounding the transformation of traditional or folk music intoa tangible commodity: problems of ownership and authenticity, in particular legal issues of copyright (who has the right to profit) and more emotive issues of moral authority (who has the right to represent). These issues have recently come to the fore in China as it undergoes its uneasy transformation into a socialist market economy, and they have special ramifications because of the state’s extensive and ongoing manipulation of folk music for political ends.

Key Words: minority nationalities • Uyghur • Xinjiang • music • appropriation • representation
