The key to our minds ability to create is to bring forth images that help us to see the world in a different way, a new way. With this line of vision, we are opened to numerous possibilities. All hopes that have once seemed so far a way suddenly become attainable. For moments that are surrounded by despair, with no sign of light to guide us, are soon turned into a time of triumph and rejoicing. There is a spirit of our mind's eye, when at its most active, gives more power to extend itself further. That is inspiration. Drawn from the simplest of matters or objects that we may or may not have taken notice. In these stories, inspiration is given to a number of working people, who try to fill in the missing links in their vocations of choice. For in their midst they come face to face with an ultimate gift from a common object, a statue, a cloth sculpture, a beaded art form. Whichever name they are given, the message to these people is to respond to this gift; Find within their hearts the courage to go beyond where the eyes can see.

Dedicated to the late Gerard Behague (1937-2005), whose pioneering work in Latin American music, popular culture, and performance studies contributed extensively to ethnomusicological discourse in the 1970s-1990s, this anthology offers comparative perspectives on the evolving legacy of performance ethnography in socio-musical analysis. President of the Society for Ethnomusicology from 1979-81, editor of its journal, Ethnomusicology, from 1974-78, and founder and editor of the trilingual Latin American Music Review from 1980 until his death, Behague also established the ethnomusicology graduate program at the University of Texas at Austin in 1974, thereby influencing the training and thinking of dozens of the field's practitioners. Among these are the volume's eight authors, whose contributions reflect the heritage but also contemporary trajectories of Behague's scholarly concerns. Prefaced by an essay outlining key developments in the ethnography of performance paradigm, the volume's seven case studies portray snapshots of musical life in representative communities of the Americas, including the southwestern and Pacific United States, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Chile, Cuba, and Ecuador. Situated in milieus ranging from the indigenous festivals of the Andean highlands, to the competitive public gatherings of poet-singers in post-Pinochet Chile, to the Puerto Rican dance halls of the Hawaiian islands, these studies pose anthropological inquiries into the ontology of performance practice, the social power of poetic performativity, and the experience and embodiment of sound in place.
