Description: 
In this paper we focus upon two central and broad issues regarding the ethics of creating tangible, static artefacts from intangible and dynamic musical heritage: the process of making sound recordings, and the repatriation of those recordings to the cultural custodians, including the ways that these recordings act as a form of self? representation. Other closely related ethical issues in ethnomusicological research are invoked but not discussed. These include, for example, international copyright law and oral traditions; issues of human rights and social justice, and combining analytic field research with practical advocacy and public ethnomusicology projects (see Kirshenblatt?Gimblett 2006 and Seeger 1991 and 2008); and the relationship between the international flow of cultural economics with local identities expressed though performance.
