DATE CHANGE: Historic Recordings from the Ottoman Diaspora: Music & Migration
Ethnomusicology Archive – Room 1630 – Schoenberg Music Building

Record Collector Ian Nagoski will address immigrant musical performers from present-day Turkey and Syria who recorded in the U.S. during the 1910s-1940s and present original research on the artists while considering them in the context of both their native and adopted homes. This presentation is an investigation of the relationship between the Ottoman Empire and the United States through the lens of musical performers and immigrant musical life in the nascent years of the record industry.

Ian Nagoski is a music researcher and record producer in Baltimore, Maryland. For more than a decade, he has produced dozens of reissues of early 20th century recordings in languages other than English for labels including Dust-to-Digital, Tompkins Square, his own Canary Records, and others. His enthusiastic talks have been hosted at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens Greece, the University of Chicago, and New York University, and he has presented his work in installation at the Museum fur Naturkunde in Berlin Germany, the Wellcome Center in London England, and the Peale Center in Baltimore Maryland. A fragment of his work is included on the MoonkArk, the first object to be permanently installed on the moon, in 2020.

Part of the Archive Tuesdays series, sponsored by the UCLA Graduate Students Association, the UCLA Ethnomusicology Graduate Student Organization, the 
UCLA Center for the Advancement of Teaching TA Training Program, and The Student Chapter of ARSC at UCLA.
