Local Music Sharing via Mobile Phones in Melanesia

Watson, Amanda H A; Crowdy, Denis; Jackson, Cameron; Horst, Heather

Description

Little is known about the use of mobile phones for sharing music content in Melanesia, particularly creative content produced within the region. This In Brief argues that this recent phenomenon is worthy of investigation. It begins by providing a background on music production and mobile phones in Melanesia. It then presents research data from Papua New Guinea (PNG), introduces a specific example of a local music- sharing service in Solomon Islands and offers suggestions for further research.
