Symposium Music as Identity: Regional Instruments in Changing Contexts

What are and were the roles of different musical instruments in their communities and how are they changing? What are the key factors enabling and influencing these changes? How does the process of internationalisation of regional instruments and their use in artificial music influence their construction, practice, and social status? How do composers influence these processes?
