Chapter 1 examines how the importance of music in late-nineteenth-century Bombay helped create an urbanity in which music organized both urban spaces and subject formation.
Chapter 2 explores the relationship between music and built space in Mumbai, paying specific attention to the presence of Hindustani music in Girgaum, the "native town" of Bombay.
Chapter 3 attends to the affective intensity of listening to Hindustani music.
Chapter 4 focuses on musical pedagogy and its role in the formation of musical subjects. In the afterword, Niranaja discusses her film and curation project Making Music-Making Space, a three-year collaboration between filmmakers, designers, and architects in Mumbai. Throughout the chapters, Niranjana draws heavily from interviews she conducted between 2012 and 2017 with collaborators and Hindustani listeners in Mumbai. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of South Asian studies, postcolonial and colonial studies, ethnomusicology, and social theory.
