    Myth, Mimesis, and Magic: The Music of the T'boli, Philippines

    Manolete Mora

    Winner, National Book Award, Folklore, 2006
    Why is musical mimesis so much a part of the cultural world of indigenous Filipinos? What does it tell us about their musical sensibilities and their social world? This book addresses these issues through a study of the relations between musical poetics, myth, and magic in the musical and spiritual lives of T’boli men and women from the highlands of southwestern Mindanao.
