Abstract:Each of these discourses may be understood to support cultural regionalism not merely as an end in itself, but as part of a larger articulation of capitalist modernity wherein local elites, state institutions, private media, and 'folklore' studies all stand to gain from the construction of regional difference. This study is a modest effort to trace the growth of cultural regionalism across the historical depth and geographic breadth of the popular music industry, with an eye on the socio-cultural repercussions that such a process necessarily entails.
