Resumo

O engajamento do ativismo participante com a música marginal coloca os etnomusicólogos face-a-face com a escolha de tema de pesquisa, com a auto-reflexividade e com a disputa de valor musical nas políticas de poder local. Utilizando abordagens fenomenológicas e processos dialógicos de dois estudos de caso da música folclórica Dalit (anteriormente "intocável" ou "pária”) no Estado de Tamil Nadu, do seu trabalho de campo e da produção de documentários na Índia, a autora argumenta que o envolvimento com o significado e valor da música marginalizada sul-asiática obriga os etnomusicólogos a desconstruir as hegemonias de estilo musical e a própria contribuição da etnomusicologia para a perpetuação destasno trabalho de campo, no conteúdo de ensino e no planejamento acadêmico/comunitário. O artigo examina métodos (incluindo o documentário e o ativismo participativo) para abordar contextos nos quais os oprimidos usam a música afirmar políticas identitárias e culturais de revalorizaçãocontra hierarquias locais de valor musical que contribuem para o que a autora denomina de Teoria Dalit da Ação: isto é, a agência politizada dos oprimidos afirmada através das artes, que requer uma metodologia etnográfica ativista focada na colaboração, no diálogo e na reciprocidade.
