Abstract: In 1962, only a dozen years after the term "ethnomusicology" first appeared in print in the writings of Jaap Kunst, Robert Garfias arrived at the University of Washington to found a program in ethnomusicology studies. Over the ensuing decades, the program at Washington influenced hundreds of students, musicians, and scholars, at the university and beyond. In this book, former students and colleagues of Garfias contribute essays on a variety of ethnomusicological topics in tribute to his influence on each of them and on the field as a whole.
