Our music, our world: Musical associations, wind bands, and local communities (1880-2018)

This study addresses the musical practice that is voluntarily developed in musical associations/communities. The specific focus is on wind bands, institutions which - despite playing an important role in the lives of Portuguese people for decades – only began to attract academic interest from the turn of the century onwards.
