Worlding is defined here as an act that interrogates ontological boundaries, geographies, and ethnicities. A cultural practice like music-making can provide insights into how the process of worlding might work. I look at the question of ‘the practice of learning’ (music) in Bombay, Shanghai and Hong Kong through the long twentieth century. These are connected geographies via the opium trade of the 19th century, but their historical links are forgotten today. I suggest that they be re-investigated through Inter-Asia methodology, so as to provide a glimpse of forms of globalization that precede and may even challenge current understandings of the concept.
