The School of Oriental & African Studies at University of London offers a
MMus degree in Ethnomusicology.

Contacts in the Centre of Music Studies:

Ms Lucy Duran

post-independent Africa; connections b/t African & Caribbean music;
Afro-Latin Caribbean music)

Dr Keith Howard
(interests: Korean music; sociology of music in Western world)

Dr David Hughes

music; Javanese gamelan; grammars of music)

Dr Richard Widdess

You can probably get in touch with them via e-mail or get a proper postal
address for them either through the school's web page or by enquiring
with the registrar.

These addresses are:

As far as your reference to jazz, the Dept. of Music at University of New
Orleans has a very good Jazz Studies program. Ellis Marsalis is one of
the profs in this department. I don't know if ethnomusicology is
part of their course content or of any ties there may be b/t the music
dept & anthro dept. I believe the main number of the school is
(504) 286-6000.

Good Luck.
