The Indigenization of Tamil Christian Music: Musical Style and Liberation Theology

Zoe Sherinian

Historical and ethnographic analysis of the cultural exchange of religion in the context of colonialism reveals that local indigenizers have agency and the adoptive process cannot simply be attributed to cultural imposition that resulted in the destruction of the indigenous culture. Moreover, generations after adoption in the post-colonial period, it has been observed that oppressed groups can continue to re-indigenize or reform the adopted religion by drawing on local liberating cultural forms that continue to make it contextually meaningful.

This book was published by the Catholicos-Patriarch Louis Raphaël I Sako. entitled "The Liturgical Idea of the Chaldean Mass with the Orders". This book includes the liturgical ideas of all the prayers used in our rituals and for all occasions and festivals.

Our Mission

Christian Musicological Society of India is an international forum for interdisciplinary research, discussion, and dissemination of knowledge, on the music, art and dance of about thirty million Christians in India, who belong to a diverse set of communities and linguistic groups and follow a variety of liturgical traditions some of which date back to the early Christian era. Founded in 1999 by Dr. Joseph J. Palackal CMI, the Society hopes that such researches will draw attention to the lesser known aspects of India in connection with the rest of the world.
