Prof. Margaret Kartomi won the Koizumi prize in Ethnomusicology

Warmest congratulations to Professor Margaret Kartomi from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music who is the 2015 recipient of the prestigious Koizumi prize in Ethnomusicology. The prize will be awarded in a ceremony in Tokyo in May 2016 in which Professor Kartomi will also give an address on her research work. Named after distinguished Japanese musicologist Fumio Koizumi, the prize was established in 1989. The list of previous recipients of the prize includes such figures as John Blacking, José Maceda, William P. Malm, Bruno Nettl, Tran Van Khe, Jean-Jacques Nattier, Steven Feld, Simha Aron, and other ethnomusicologists whose work has shaped the international landscape of contemporary ethnomusicology. This award is a rare distinction for outstanding achievement and further evidence of the very high esteem in which Margaret’s work is held by her peers across the world.
