Kurzbeschreibung
Natalie Zelensky examines post-Bolshevik Russian emigration and the popular music culture this community brought to New York City over the past century. Performing Tsarist Russia in New York presents a close historical and ethnographic examination of music’s potential as an aesthetic, discursive, and social space through which diasporas can engage with an idea of a mythologized homeland.
