Ethnomusicologist George List

George ListGeorge List is a major figure in the field of ethnomusicology. The professor emeritus of folklore and ethnomusicology has been, in his ninety-six years, an archivist, researcher, translator, magazine editor, composer, conductor, flutist, and choreographer.

He was director of Indiana University’s Archive of Traditional Music for more than two decades, during which time he built the Archives into a nationally-known resource.

Dr. List lost his sight at age 66 yet has continued a prolific output of journal articles and reviews, and his books include “Music and Poetry in a Colombian Village: A Tri-Cultural Heritage.”

    Me and other colleagues from Greece are sad about the loss this major figure in ethnomusicology, but his work will still be with us. Our deepest sympathies.
