Abstract [en]

Music and dance have played an important role throughout history to strengthen bonds within groups and communities and in maintaining borders toward other groups of people. Music and dance have also been, and still are, an overarching force for co-existence, over demarcation lines between different ethnic, political and religious fractions and adversaries. In this presentation we discuss the role of music and dance among Kurds in Sweden and in their contacts and commitment (1) in Sweden and the Swedish majority society, (2) within the Kurdish worldwide diaspora and (3) to people in Kurdistan as well.

The context is Kurdish organizations and temporary organized cultural events when Kurdishness and Kurdish mobilization is of current interest (as the ongoing war in Kurdistan). We also discuss these issues in relation to other musical traditions, as Swedish folkdance and folk music in Sweden and Finland and in relation to different concepts concerning co-existence among people.

The presentation derives from the research project "Music, identity and multiculturalism. A study of the functions of music in ethnic-based associations in Sweden". The project studies the activities within six minority or national groups in Gothen-burg, Malmö and Stockholm.
