ABSTRACT
The article presents the conference paper on musical nationalism presented by Gerard Béhague in July 1994. The ideology of musical nationalism as applied to case studies of Mexico, Peru and Brazil is discussed in an attempt to analyze the motivation of certain composers for relying on indigenous musical traditions and the resulting national qualities of these traditions. As one of the main concerns of contemporary ethnomusicology, the article raises representation, misrepresentation and appropriation.
